Winter Aconite
Winter Aconite Eranthis Eranthis hyemalis Bright buttercup-yellow flowers in very early spring, each with a frilly green collar which opens bronzy. Good naturalized under deciduous trees and shrubs; can spread by seed. Very similar to Eranthis cilicica but just slightly later, and the leaves are more deeply dissected.

Prefers slightly alkaline, humusy moist soil in sun or dappled shade. Tolerant of frosts and late snow. Soak corms in tepid water for 8-12 hours before planting.

2-4", VE, Z5-7, 4cm/up.

Additional Information

Miscellaneous Bulbs

is the name the Royal General Bulbgrowers Association in Holland (Koninklijke Algemeene Vereeniging voor Bloembollencultuur, or KAVB) gives to this large group of flowers. The expensive catalogs call them specialty or accent bulbs; some call them minor or dwarf bulbs (even though some of the fritillaries are huge!); Louise Beebe Wilder covered most of them in her 1936 classic Adventures with Hardy Bulbs. Whatever you call them, most are uncommonly sweet, delicate, colorful, and completely welcome in spring.

  • approximate height at flowering time,
