Once a native site in the UK these lovely early spring flowering plants are cultivated and grown in gardens.

Pulsatillas are commonly called ‘Pasqueflowers’, which is derived from the Hebrew word for Passover – and reflects their Easter flowering period. The flowers of the Pasqueflower were commonly used to decorate the Paschal candle and the rich green dye extracted from their leaves and flowers was used to stain eggs as gifts on Easter Sunday.
Pulsatillas are native to our chalk land meadows, but will thrive in most soils, being found in mainland Europe growing in acid sand. Pulsatilla was once a common wildflower in England. Although tolerant of summer drought, Pulsatillas need plentiful moisture in spring. They are best in an open situation, although they will grow in light shade. They are modest plants, never exceeding 30cm. in height and not much more in spread. They look content with other early spring perennials such as Pulmonaria, Primula vulgaris and Hellebores.
