Pulsatilla vulgaris (pasque flower, common pasque flower, Dane’s blood) belongs to the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae), native to western, central and southern Europe.
This is a herbaceous perennial. It develops upright rhizomes, which function as food-storage organs. Its leaves and stems are long, soft, silver-grey and hairy. It grows to 15–30 cm high and when it is fruit-bearing up to 40 cm. The roots go deep into the soil (to 1 m). The finely-dissected leaves are arranged in a rosette and appear with the bell-shaped flower in early spring. The flower is ‘cloaked in myth’; one legend has it that Pasqueflowers sprang up in places that had been soaked by the blood of Romans or Danes because they often appear on old barrows and boundary banks.
