Pulsatilla vulgaris 'Blue Bells'
Large bells of mauve -blue in spring.
Out of stock.
A pretty form of our native 'Pasque flower' (which is supposed to flower at Easter), 'Blue Bells' is more a soft mauve-blue than actual blue, but it's a pretty, soft shade nonetheless.
The large flowers (over 5cm, 2" wide) appear low down as furry buds in spring, before the foliage develops. The stems slowly extend and the flowers open when about 15 - 20cm (6"- 8") high. These are followed by attractive seed heads.
Left alone, each plant will form a solid clump of dissected leaves, expanding slowly year on year. Prefers sunshine and a well-drained soil. Pulsatilla likes a limy, chalky soil - it's found on chalk downs in the wild - but does well even in slightly acid soil.
Well established plants that should all flower next spring.
