Its common name is “Winter Aconite” almost the first yellow flower out in the winter. The flowers are sensitive to warmth, so at temperatures over 50 F they will fully open, however still look good in the closed stage! Fl…owering in February/March and only 13cm tall they make a good winter ground cover.
Plant in open sunny positions or under deciduous tres or shrubs in a fertile soil.
Eranthus are one a few bulbs that do not like to be dried out for replanting. Instead when finished flowering dig up the bulbs and replant imediately. This is known as “planting in the green”
Apparently these do well as cut flowers floating in water.
