Pulsatilla, Official (Anemone pulsatilla), packet of 30 seeds, organic

(1 customer review)

$4.95

Family:  Crowfoot (Ranunculaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

(Wind Flower, Pasque Flower)  Herbaceous perennial. Native to Europe. The plant is diminutive but brazen, sending up large, showy purple flowers early in the spring, before most plants are half awake, giving way to upright, feathery seedheads straight out of Dr. Suess. Traditional usage (TWM): nervous disorders, shock, menopause, PMS, insomnia. A classic low-dose botanical, the plant is acrid and should be treated with great respect.  Plant prefers full sun to part shade and dryish, well-drained soils. Thick bark mulches are helpful. We provide seed from the new harvest only, as seed has short life span. Strew seed on moist medium, barely cover with soil, tamp securely, keep cool and moist, and expect germination in 30 to 90 days.  Very slow going at first, which is typical with seed of plants that are themselves long-lived. In the case of Pulsatilla, I have 15-year-old plants that are going strong. The clump enlarges every year, self-mulching with its own leaf detritus.
30 seeds/pkt., Certified Organically Grown (seed has been rubbed to divest it of the feathery aril)

      Hi LAura,
      That is good intuition on your part. I started pulsatilla last year in the fall which is when you plant it, including in Z6. These are nearly ready to list–please hit “waitlist” for pulsatilla plant.

    Great Seeds, Can't Wait Till They Flower

    Michelle Robson-Garth (verified owner)

    Seeds germinated very well, you just need a little patience. I planted these last year and this year and I had germination both times. This year I sowed them in a shady part of my garden, I sowed some on 04/08/18 (Autumn) and then more on at the start of October (mid-spring here in Melbourne, Australia) . They have steadily been sprouting since 21st of October, but I would say it two and a bit months for them to germinate. Will post again when they are bigger and have hopefully survived.
