Nodding flowers appear in early spring before the feathery leaves unfold. Native of mountainous meadows from Siberia to E Asia. I've tried to grow this several times from seed, and have gotten seedlings three times. The first two times, they didn't survive a full season; wish me luck on this third attempt!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

How do you handle the Siberian pasqueflower plants at the early stage of development? Do you keep them under lights for any length of time? When do you plant them out in the garden?
I have just one plant growing from seed planted this spring... still under gro-lights.
Unfortunately, mine are no longer alive. I don't know if they perished last summer or through the winter, but in any case, they weren't there this spring.
- Seed from NARGS '07/'08 exchange. Removed tails, baggy 70F (26d; 9%G, 17d) - 35F (22d) - 70F (27%G, 9-16d). Only the seedling from the first warm stage developed.
- Seed from NARGS '09/'10 exchange. Baggy 70F (25d; 25%G, 14d) - 35F (8w) - 70F (58%G, 12d).
Also baggy 35F (6w) - 70F (27d; 20%G, 12d).
- Seed from NARGS '14/'15 exchange. Baggy 70F (4w; 8%G in 3w, but no dev) - 35F (7w; 8%G, 18d) - 70F (73%G, 3-18d)
A cold stage is certainly helpful - starting with a warm stage also appears to be good practice.
