Rockeries of the Western Alps

The flora of the Western Alps includes Pulsatilla halleri. The flowers of this exquisite anemone, which grows on high mountain meadows, emerge at the start of spring. The fruit, which matures slowly over the course of the summer, is also beautiful and consists of a sphere of seeds with a long feathery filament featuring striking bronze-coloured highlights.
