Purpurascens is an in-depth exploration of a magical group of objects used by woodworkers of the 16th and 17th centuries, including chisels, gouges, and handles. In this article, we use close-up photos to show how these tools would be used in a simple wood-turning project. You will develop an understanding of the importance of their shape and function and the differences in using the tools with their given handles and without them.Cyclamen purpurascens grows in deciduous or mixed woodland, especially among beeches and over limestone, at 250–1,300 m (800–4,300 ft) above sea level in continental Europe from eastern France across the Alps to Poland and south to Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is also found in mountainous parts of Romania and western Russia, where it has been introduced.

Before you get started, one of the most important things to know about the seeds of wild plants is that many have built-in dormancy mechanisms that prevent the seed from germinating. In nature, this prevents a population of plants from germinating all at once, before killing frosts, or in times of drought. To propagate native plants, a gardener must break this dormancy before seed will grow.


To top it off, magenta blooms turn white, setting off the stunning colors. It grows in an erect shape; flowers tower above the foliage. It is lovely to use as a specimen, and takes on even more personality planted in small groupings. Flame Grass is not considered a dwarf, but it only reaches four feet making it appropriate and useful for areas with limited space. Flame Grass prefers more moisture than other Miscanthus to look its best.We dig plants when they are dormant from our outdoor beds and ship them April-May and October. Some species go dormant in the summer and we can ship them July/August. We are among the few still employing this production method, which is labor intensive but plant-friendly. They arrive to you dormant, with little to no top-growth (bare-root), packed in peat moss. They should be planted as soon as possible. Unlike greenhouse-grown plants, bare-root plants can be planted during cold weather or anytime the soil is not frozen. A root photo is included with each species to illustrate the optimal depth and orientation. Planting instructions/care are also included with each order. (Source:www.prairiemoon.com)
