Not Easter anymore, but I'll take it

 red pulsatilla vulagaris

The aptly named Pasqueflower, pulsatilla vulgaris, has been quite content in a shallow trough the past couple years.  Its purple relative started blooming a couple weeks ago since it's planted in the ground.  Behind it is fall-blooming sedum sieboldii and in front is an unknown passalong sedum.  Once the flowers are gone the fantastic seedheads persist.


  1. Brian, it's lovely! Such good textures, and that color! Good work!

  2. Thanks, Webb. This is part of a group of hypertufa containers that I keep outside of the dining room windows so that we can see them from inside the house. They're like a mutating miniature painting as things go in and out of bloom.
