The scoop on Eranthis Hyemalis / Winter Aconite

Most of the very early spring flowers are white; winter aconite is a heart warming bright yellow. This member of the buttercup family is so tough it sometimes blooms through snow.

Why Grow Winter Aconite?

  • These are low- to no-maintenance plants, once established
  • Plant with snow crocuses for super early season flowers
  • Deer, rabbits and rodents find winter aconite unappealing
  • Winter aconite often naturalizes in open woodlands and wildflower meadows
  • Plant where you can see out your kitchen or dining area windows to savor the bright, late winter blossoms

Winter aconite self seeds and naturalizes where happy. This plant prefers not to be moved once established.
