Daily Flower Candy: Pulsatilla vulgaris AGM

Reading time 1 minute

It’s been a heavy week, so I am going to end it with something light and fluffy. These are the silken seedheads of the pasque flower, Pulsatilla vulgaris, which follow the soft purple spring blooms. Pulsatilla is closely related to clematis, via the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae), hence the close resemblance of the seedheads to our native old man’s beard, Clematis vitalba.
