[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Pulsatilla nigricans is a subspecies of Pulsatilla pratensis, and some authors consider it as a separate species (Pulsatilla nigricans).

The flower is almost entirely black (slightly violet or purple in color).
Lifestyle and habitat
Semi-arid grasslands, rocky, plant of the steppes. Likes sandy soil, the warm, southern slopes, has settle down in the quicksand too.

Blooms in March-April. It can be found very often together with Pulsatilla pratensis as the photo shows it.
Poisonous plants, but also contain medicinal substances.

I have changed the original photo... I would have liked to suggest the fact that Pulsatilla Nigricans is often found together with Pulsatilla partensis so I have left a totally OOF Pulsatilla pratensis in the foreground. Technically incorrect for a photo...
Hope that you would appreciate this change..

Buna Csaba
Foarte fain surprinse acest manunchi. Asa imi place foarte mult si sper ca si altii vor aprecia imaginea si in special specia pe care o prezinti. Frumos pov de jos, de la firul ierbii.

Toate cele bune,
