This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil (or equal parts of a loam-based potting compost such as John Innes No1 and grit for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Deep to pale purple goblet-shaped blooms, which appear from March to May, are followed by clouds of billowing seedheads. Pasque flowers are often found growing on ancient earthworks or at the edges of Roman roads and are often one of the first signs of spring. They're perfect for a sunny rock garden or alpine bed.

  • Garden care: Plant very firmly in well-drained soil and take care when carrying out routine border maintenance since Pasque flowers resent having their roots disturbed.
