Eranthis hyemalis, or Winter aconite, has a green collar of leaves with in the middle a yellow flower that appears in early spring. Winter aconite combines well with Snowdrops (Galanthus) and Spring snowflakes (Leucojum vernum).

Eranthis hyemalis is ideal for under deciduous trees and shrubs, or for in a stinzen-meadow, and prefers a rather loamy or clayey soil. If you’re gardening on sandy soil, then be sure to add a good amount of leafmould (or compost), and also clay minerals and/or lime, to each planting hole.

Winter aconite is native to Europe.

The loose bulbs of Eranthis hyemalis are susceptible to drying out: please plant the bulbs as early as possible in autumn; the results will be better!
