Description

Sweeter than sweet ground hugging tufts of golden blooms each with a skirt of green dance their way into your earliest spring garden. Once they’re settled, your Eranthis hyemalis is there to stay, returning each late winter to early spring with a golden taste of the springtime glories to come. Just when you need some sunshine in your life, Eranthis hyemalis (or 'Winter Aconite') brings you the cheery colour you need.

Clearly a perfect choice for rockeries filled with alpine blooms, they’re also pretty in pots – even the foliage is quite remarkable – while in the garden, Winter Aconites are charming companions for Snowdrops or Iris reticulata.
