    When they have flowered, do not deadhead; the seedheads are most attractive feathery concoctions that are as decorative, if not as colourful, as the flowers.

    They do well in poor sandy/stoney soil.

    Grown from seed in its second year. There is a dark blue dot in the inside of the flower. As noted below this is typical of many dark colored pulsatilla flowers.
