    The image failed to post with my original question. I am keen to know if the flowers in the picture are Pasque flowers - Pulsatilla vulgaris. Thanks!  Paul

    No. Those are Leucanthemum, or one of the many daisies, or something similar. 
    I'm trying to find a pic of my pulsatillas, but it takes ages  ;)

    White pulsatilla



    The foliage is quite ferny and feathery, and then they have lovely seed heads.
    I have purple ones too, but I could be here all night trying to find them... ;)

    Oh thank you so much Fairygirl. I just looked online. I am thrilled to have them identified. My late mother planted them. The bees love them. Thanks again!!

    The picture is of Erigeron glaucus by the way.

    I wondered if it was that @Palustris, then changed my mind!  :D
    I thought the foliage was different on them.

    Yes, Fairygirl originally posted that they were Erigeron/Sea Breeze and then switched to Leucanthemum. In fact, when I did an online image search with her first suggestion, I am 100 percent sure these are Erigeron glaucus. I am so thrilled to know their name and how I can manage them. Thank you!!!

    I hope you get some of those pulsatillas too at some point. Lovely little plants  :)
    I think Erigeron are very low maintenance too. I don't grow them, but lots of people do, here on the forum .

    Thanks for the recommendation @Fairygirl. I have inherited the garden and I am already planning ahead to next year and I think the white pulsatillas will look splendid in the rock garden.  B)
