One of the earliest spring bloomers, the purple or lavender blooms of pasque flowers were once used to dye Easter eggs, and that is a good way to remember when they bloom. The flowers open as the dissected leaves emerge. Attractive silky heads of seeds follow so these workhorses continue to look good for many weeks.
Pasque flowers are native plants that demand excellent drainage. They are ideal for sunny rock gardens, crevice gardens, and any spot that is very well drained.
