The Living Forest (182) : Pasque Flower

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

    Die Kuhschelle ist eine der wunderschönen Pflanzen, die in jedem Wuchsstadium eine fotografische Augenweide ist und immer wieder ein herrliches Motiv.

    As always: Just perfect!
    I think the German name for this
    lovely flower should be changed
    into "Billiau" (Mark my words)
    Cheers - A.
