Prairie Garden Tip

The wild Prairie Crocus (Anemone patens) is a sign of spring we all recognize and love.  Below is the Pasque flower (Pulsatilla vulgaris) which is a Prairie Crocus look-alike that will grow in our gardens. It even has the fine silky hairs on stems and buds and wonderfully decorative seed heads.
