http://www.durgan.org/URL/?Pulsatilla 18 April 2009 Pulsatilla vulgaris (Pasque Flower, Common Pasque flower, Dane's Blood)

There are two clumps in the garden. They are early Spring bloomers and most attractive. The pasque flower is the official state flower of South Dakota and the provincial flower of Manitoba.

They are lovely and have beautiful seed heads later on. As a child growing up in Sask we had them just outside the backdoor growing wild in the pastures. Thanks for the memory.

Where did you grow up in Saskatchewan? I grew up on a homestead in Carrot River, and never encountered the Pulsatilla vulgaris plant for some reason..

We grew up south of North Battleford, inbetween there and Biggar. The back pasture of our farm was absolutely stunning now that I understand the importance of it. This area had never been tilled and was original native prairie wool. Hopefully it isn't cultivated now, would be a shame. in the spring the crocus covered the hillside and we would pick handfulls of flowers. (Wouldn't do that now) LOL
