Pulsatilla vulgaris (Pasque Flower, Common Pasque flower, Dane's Blood) belongs to the Buttercup family (Ranunculaceae), native to western, central and southern Europe.

It grows to 15-30 cm high and when it is fruit-bearing up to 40 cm. The roots go deep into the soil (to 1 m). The finely-dissected leaves are arranged in a rosette and appear with the bell-shaped flower in early spring.

It grows in sparely wooded pine forests or meadows, often on a sunny sloping side with calcium rich soil. It is also the county flower of the English counties of Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshiremarker. A large colony occurs on publicly accessible land in the Cotswolds, at the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's Gloucestershire Pasqueflower Reserve.

It is the main ingredient in the French tonic h├ępatoum, taken for "crise de foie" and to help the production of bile.
