The scoop on 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 right up through the snow. Plant this fall and watch the cheery patch spread each year for a bigger and brighter show, to push back those late winter doldrums.

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 sunny, late winter blossoms

Winter aconite self seeds and naturalizes where happy, spreading to create cheerful brilliant yellow patches in late winter, just when a little outdoor color is so welcome.
