Pasque flower. Pulsatilla vulgaris. It's a really beautiful native, they don't like being moved and prefer a south facing dry slope.

Oh, you're lucky, I had to buy mine.

Definitely not Pasque Flower, which is hairy all over. This is an anemone, possibly Anemone  coronaria De Caen.

Well done again Landgirl100. Anemone (but which one?)  'Sylphide'? Perhaps?

So many pretty ones.

hi again all,thankyou for all your replys. it dose look like a Anemone  coronaria De Caen. but when i was weeding the pot i took some of the plant and put it into another pot to give itsome colour and it did not have a bulb just a mass of roots
