This beautiful alpine perennial has purple bell-shaped flowers which are covered small delicate hairs, and a bright yellow centre for contrast. The foliage is feathery and coated in silver hairs and is slightly more compact in nature than other pulsatillas. Blooming in the spring to early summer it makes a lovely addition to any rock or alpine garden. Prefers full sun or partial shade in well-drained soil.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
