‘Rubra’ Pasque Flower


‘Rubra’ Pasque Flower

Pulsatilla vulgaris ‘Rubra’ Up to 12" tall.

Also known as Wind Flower. Frosty-green fuzzy flower stems often emerge when patches of snow are still on the ground.

Soon after, large open bell-shaped dusky burgundy flowers with golden-yellow stamens bloom as the finely cut furry ferny foliage begins to form. At bloom time flower stems are typically 4-5" tall but continue to grow after blooms have passed, eventually reaching heights of 9-12", with unique spherical clusters of feathery silvery seedheads.

Excellent choice for rock gardens and the front of the border. With proper care it will develop a deep extensive root system.

Plant 10" apart in full sun to part shade in rich seriously well-drained soil. Prefers not to be disturbed once established. Species native to Europe. Z4. (3½" plug stock)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be planted or potted up soon, wet the roots. If you do not plant or pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.

Pot up rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
