Pulstallia vulgaris (formally Anemone pulsatilla) is an interesting plant, each of its phases full of character. I call him my hairy friend.
The semi double flowers range from pure white to cream, pink to red,and light blue to violet colours. The flowers appear in earllest spring and then are followed by amazing fluffy seed heads.
Grows approx. 30cm in a circular clump. Is ideally at home in the rock garden as withstands quite a dry place but is equally at home in your average garden border.
