Paraquilegia anemonoides

Synonym(s) Paraquilegia grandiflora
Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers lavender

Forms a mound of small lacy leaves, with daintily nodding flowers held above. Reportedly hard to grow, succumbing easily to aphids, winter wet, or lack of adequate moisture depending on what hazards your garden throws at it. So many alpine gardeners prefer to grow it in a pot. I have just one puny seedling, so it's too early to decide what I'll do with mine... (No need to decide: it died in its pot)

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
