Some Pulsatilla on Kew's rock garden

The pulsatillas are looking good at the moment, at Wisley as Paul has said in his diary and also at Kew a few miles down the road. Here are some photos - I think the names are correct but if anyone has any other suggestions please say so. The first is simple, Pulsatilla vulgaris seeded into a crack between two rocks - a nice reddish colour form.

This next one is P. montana, from Switzerland.

This is P. halleri subsp. halleri var. segusiana, originally from Piedmont, Italy but it's been at Kew for over 40 years!

...and this beautiful species is just coming into bloom now - I don't know if it is best called P. patens subsp. flavescens or just P. flavescens. It came from the Middel Ural Mts, Russia.
