Pulsatilla pratensis subsq nigricans - wind flower, pasque flower - whole fresh plant when in flower

From Pulsatilla nigricans, the pasque flower. The homeopathic remedy is made from the whole plant when it is in flower.

Constitutional Indications
Children who are small, fair, fine-boned, bright and cheerful, but also shy and sensitive and blush easily respond well to Pulsatilla. So do slightly plumper, darker, more languid children who crave affection but find it difficult to give. Adults who are shy, gentle, fair-skinned or fair-haired, and rather plump also benefit from Pulsatilla. The Pulsatilla type is easily led, easily moulded and rather changeable.
