Planting Guides

Growing Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower): Plant Pulsatilla plants in well-drained, alkaline soil with full to part sun. In moister areas, Pulsatilla can be planted on sloping beds, hillsides and raised beds to ensure their roots aren't waterlogged in winter. Pulsatilla prefer colder zones (4-8) and aren't a good choice for the southern U.S. Young seedlings can be transplanted; established plants have deep tap roots and should be left in place. Pulsatilla is an ideal companion plant for many early spring blooming bulbs such as crocus, wildflower tulips, and miniature daffodils. Learn more about Growing Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower)

      Comments about High Country Gardens Pulsatilla vulgaris Blaue Glocke:

      Planted a selection of pasque flower in a highly visible and challenging section of the yard that gets crispy fried by the sun and sandblasted by the wind.
      Pasque are a nostalgia flower for me, as my dad used to point them out during hikes in the rocky, high mountain grasslands and slopes in Montana when I was a child. So I was thrilled to find them in a few different colors for sale, and from my favorite sustainable plant nursery, so I knew that they would be good quality!
      The leaves aren't showy and are almost weedy looking, so be careful to not groom the garden too vigorously where you plant them, as it would be somewhat easy to accidentally remove them.
      Pasque flowers do their show before it really heats up, and are done setting their fascinating seedheads before summer. That way they are more dormant by summer and don't require coddling during the heat and dry, similar to an oriental poppy.
      So it might be nice to interplant with others that are more active during the summer, such as yarrow, obedient plant, soapworts, etc.
      I fall planted 2017 and already spring 2018 have seen a flower or two and seed head!

        I have planted this gem all through my gardens, along front edges and walkways...blooms first in the garden, and whenever there is a cool snap. Beautiful silvery white feathery seed heads on flower clumps that grow over time and that have for me slowly naturalized. A wonderful plant for Santa Fe!

          Ordered this on sale after its flowering period but it does have pretty leaves. That's why it got 4 stars. Hoping it comes through the winter.

          Q & A

          Suggested Companion Plants:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
