This plant with its striking purple springflowers is native to western, central and southern Europe.
In Belgium however it’s a very rare species but I found them growing in the ‘Wolfsbush’ at Montenau.

The plant is highly toxic, in particular for dogs !

Dutch name : Wildemanskruid
German name : Kuhschelle
Latin name : Pulsatilla vulgaris

Ciao Mark, buona giornata.

what an irresisitble combination of purple and green – very springlike and somehow very elegant, too! i've never seen them grow in the wild, i think, so they must be rare in my part of the world, too ; ))! as always, you've captured them in such beautiful light! amazing how very furry their stems and leaves are – early spring bloomers wearing a natural winter coat! ; )) greetings, sabine.

Die schauen wirklich prachtvoll aus.

I think the German name for this

into "Billiau" (Mark my words)
