Pulsatilla vulgaris

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 15 May 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Pulsatilla vulgaris (NL: Wildemanskruid / EN: Pasque Flower) is one of the most beautiful early spring flowering plants in Belgium but with only a few populations left the species is critically endangered. The species belongs to the Buttercup family (Ranunculaceae) and is native to western, central and southern Europe. In previous post I showed the full plant in back-light. Today the heart of the flower with the beautiful yellow coloured stamens with the contrasting purple pistils in the middle.
