Detailed Description

Every gardener has that moment in late winter, after the excitement of early season catalogs has subsided, when the thought "Is spring ever going to come?" keeps surfacing. There are ways to hurry the process along and winter aconite is an excellent one. This sturdy member of the buttercup family wakes up early and blooms well before the crocuses are stirring. Glossy, electric yellow flowers emerge about the same time as snow drops (galanthus sp.), in late winter, often in February. With a pretty green foliage ruff around each flower, these beauties stand out against bare ground or snow. Winter aconite thrives in cold climates and seems to flower best in snowy years. This plant prefers not to be moved, so choose a suitable site for now and for the future after your aconite patch has naturalized and spread into a colorful blanket. A good partner for bleeding hearts as they like similar sites and bloom at different times. Note: Winter Aconite is poisonous; please avoid if you have small children or pets that might be inclined to nibble.
