Eranthis hyemalis (Winter Aconite) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-sowers only, because they can require a good bit of patience. They need a warm-moist period followed by a cold-moist period for germination. The easiest approach is to sow these fresh seeds about 1/8″ deep in a pot or nursery bed as soon as you receive them, so they can go through the normal summer heat and winter cold and germinate next spring. Expect the seedlings to take 2 or 3 years to reach flowering size.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Set atop an elegant green ruff, the bright yellow blooms of winter aconite (Eranthis hyemalis) are one of the first flowers to mark the arrival of spring. Total height is 4 to 6 inches. The tubers sprout in late winter to early spring, grow, bloom, set seed (with interesting, starry seedpods), and then disappear in late spring. Left alone, they can self-sow to eventually form large patches. Full sun to partial shade. Zones 3 to 7 or 8.

2022-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in late April or early May 2023. At least 20 seeds. Very few packets available.
