Pulsatilla vulgaris Rosen Glocke

Pulsatilla

Pulsatilla vulgaris ‘Rosen Glocke’ full sun  partial shade

Endemic to the calcium-rich, dry sunny moors of England, western France and Sweden, Pulsatilla is Latin for ‘sway’ and refers to the delightful crocus-like nodding spring flowers that easily frolic in a breeze. Tucked amid a veil of silky hairs, down-cloaked bright cerise pink blossoms reside upon dew-catching feathery tuffets defined by filigree-style soft green leaves. A radiant central cluster of yellow stamens and decorative seed heads furnish additional enticements, while sharp drainage and fertile alkaline niches in the rockery or a favored container keep this precious perennial satisfied.

Blooms March–April

Size: 12" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
