Pasqueflower (Anemone patens, or Anemone nuttalliana and Pulsatilla patens) is a perennial spring-flowering European plant related to the anemones, with purple flowers and fern-like foliage.
The shoots rise up from persistent woody bases. The leaves are basal, compound, and hairy and leaf stalks are 2-3 inches. A single flower is on each hairy flower stalk with 3 bracts, similar to the leaves. Flowers have 5-8 sepals, blue to purple, rarely white, 1-1 1/2 inches x 1/2 inch and are hairy on the upper surface. There are many stamens, from 150-200.
This is one in a series intended for greeting cards but can stand alone as wall art, too.
