HOW TO GROW

Sowing: This seed needs to be stratified to break its dormancy. The easiest method of stratification is to direct sow pasque flower seeds just below the surface of the soil in late fall, allowing the process to take place naturally with the cold of winter. The seed can also be mixed with moist sand, refrigerated for 60 days, and planted just below the surface of the soil in the spring after the last frost. Since this plant hates being transplanted, it grows best when planted directly out rather than being started indoors.

Growing: This plant grows best in well-drained, sandy, or rocky soils and full sun. It also grows from root cuttings. In their first one or two years of growth, pasque flowers put all their energy into developing their extensive root system. In the third year, they will begin blooming in earnest. This plant tolerates drought well, and should not be over watered; excess moisture in the soil can cause root rot. If the seeds are left to drop and have enough moisture, volunteer plants will germinate right away; if the ground is too dry, they will sprout in the next spring.

Harvesting: Pasque Flower is no longer considered safe for medicinal or culinary use.

Seed Saving: The fluffy seed heads should be harvested as soon as they will readily separate from the stem, since they will fly away on the wind if left too long. The long plumes should be removed from the Anemone Patens Wolfgangiana seeds. Store pasque flower seeds in a cool, dry place.

I have purchased Everwilde Farms seeds for the last couple of years .they have arrived promptly , and I love their quality packaging .
I am pleased with their selection of seeds as well , as they offer seeds not normally found offered by other seed companies .
I have not purchased all my varieties of seeds from everwilde as I’m not sure they gave a catalog which would make ordering easier .
All in all I highly recommend this company .

Hard to find seeds

I have ordered from Everwilde Farms twice now. Their selection is nothing short of amazing, prices are great (lots of seeds in each gold vault packet) and they are speedy! I also appreciate their planting and care instructions, as well as tips for saving seed.

Pasque flower seeds

Received quickly. Looks like plenty of seeds. Next year will be the test. Looking forward to something that grew in our pasture in SD to grow here. A piece of simpler times.

When I saw these spring flowers at my friends, I wanted a cutting of her plant. Too bad for me, she said no! So I looked for the plant/seeds and found them. They are too late for this season but will plant in the fall. I am anxious to see how they sew and hope they come up. I could not find them anywhere but here! Thank you.

DESCRIPTION

Pasque means Passion, and this native wildflower usually unfolds its lovely petals around the Easter season. Known as one of the first to blossom on the prairie, it is also called a Prairie Crocus. Once established, this plant can continue growing for up to fifty years. Once the delicate blooms have faded, it produces fluffy seedheads that float away with the wind.
Pasque Flower bursts into bloom about a month earlier than most other native spring flowers, making it one of the earliest prairie plants to blossom. Its cold hardiness allows it to thrive as far north as the state of Alaska; the silky hairs on the stems and blossoms provide insulation from cold. "Pasque," which means "passion," refers to the plant's habit of blooming around the time of Easter. Its unusual flowers, which resemble European crocuses, caused early European immigrants to give it the common name of prairie crocus. Once established, pasque flower plants can live for 50 years with more blossoms in each year of growth.
