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.

Gardening in northwest of the Minneapolis MN area and would love to buy one of these plants. Anyone interested in selling me one?

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.
