The Genus Pulsatilla

A Guide for Gardeners, Horticulturists and Botanists 

writer: Christopher Grey-Wilson

Closely related to the anemones, pulsatillas or pasque-flowers are amongst the most exquisite of all mountain plants and an essential element in any alpine garden. This is the first book devoted to these charming and eagerly sought plants. The work is not only a survey of the genus and the identification of the various species but it also examines, in detail, their cultivation and place in the garden. All this is aided by sumptuous photographs of the species in the wild and in cultivation.

Christopher Grey-Wilson has recently retired as Editor of the Alpine Garden Society after twenty-one years. Before that, from 1968-1989, he was a Principal Scientific Officer at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. He has travelled widely in the mountains of Europe and Asia, in particular, and as has written many books and articles over the years; Clematis, Cyclamen, Dionysia, as well as guides to European alpine plants, Mediterranean flowers, the flowers of western China and poppies. He was awarded a VMH by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2007 for ‘outstanding  service to horticulture’.
