Thanks once again, Todd, for great information, just when I need it. All of your articles seem to hit home with me. I am very interested in pulsatilla for my rock garden. I have attempted winter sowing some P. vulgaris this year. I also have seed for P. patens and some from last year for 'Red Cloak'. I followed one of your discussions on the use of GA-3. I may give that a try as well. Do you know how long the seed is viable? Also, I have a note to myself from that same thread that germination is very slow. Can you comment on that?

Wonderful photos as well!

Jan, expect 3-4 weeks for germination. I think 8 weeks strat is best. I have some in strat at the moment, but I must say my best germination was sowing in fall and leaving outside for the winter.

Todd thanks for the article, interesting about them following the sun and keeping warm. I will also dust with some lime (didn't know to do that.) I just had to go outside to see if mine made it through the winter, had to peek under the leaves, it was just above freezing today. I was going to post a picture of them just starting to break through but can't post pics on this thread.

Thanks Todd for the interesting article on a new flower for me. I have been wondering if there are flowers out there that bloom in early spring that are not bulbIs. I wonder if garden centers and nurseries or garden catalogs will be selling this seed at the appropriate time: fall. I always think to plant seeds in January or February.

Pasqueflower is VERY INVASIVE in my Iowa garden. I've been trying to yank them out now for about 5 years!

If in Iowa, you may have P. patens which is native, thus not considered invasive, just a bully!

Wow, I'd love it to be a "bully" in my gardens. All I have is the Pulsatilla vulgaris. It has always been one of my most favorite spring flowers.
