Closely related to the anemones, pulsatillas or pasque-flowers are amongst the most exquisite of all mountain plants and an essential element in any alpine garden.
This revised edition of Pasque-Flowers: The Genus Pulsatilla is a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated account of pasque flowers in the wild and in cultivation. This seminal work is a must for botanists and gardeners alike, with detailed analysis of members of the genus and extensive detail on the cultivation and place in the garden. Spectacular imagery of these special plants in the wild and in cultivation make this a sought-after title.
Written by Dr Christopher Grey-Wilson the book was first published privately by the author in the UK in 2014.
