Pulsatilla 2023

I can't resist but to start this thread with our beautiful prairie crocus Pulsatilla nuttalliana. This year they are plentiful thanks to last years average amount of rain

Thanks Herman. Here is another beautiful pulsatilla I grow as Pulsatilla uralensis. I love the soft  yellow colour with very faint stripe of blue .

Kris, indeed very beautiful, it looks like Pulsatilla albana.

Uraliensis is close to flavescens. So size of the flowers and a close look at the leaves are important!

Herman it is not P.albana. The flowers are larger in size. Like Pauli said this may be P.falvescens. I sowed both the seeds (P.flavescens and uraliensis) side by side in a bed and this is a seedling I got from that.

Beautiful Pulsatillas!

Kris - I would say your plant is P. flavescens. I have one young plant grown from wild coll. seeds and it looks just the same.

I have a Pulsatilla which I call P. ex. styriaca -pink, which is actually not quite pink. Besides the color, it is in the habit of having  a second wave of flowers. Does anyone notice other Pulsatilla doing the same?

And two hybrids obtained from seeds, most Pulsatilla will hybridize in the garden.

Thank you Pauli. I forgot to mention that mine was grown from seeds from a regular P. styriaca (reason why I call it ex. styriaca). It is also worth
mentioning that the person who gave me the initial seeds had no other Pulsatilla flowering at the same time. P. styriaca is among the first to flower here, especially in a location with a lot of spring sun.
So, this is the story. Another happy sowing accidents, plus the reflowering habit which is intriguing for me.
