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.
Sold out for 2021; may be available again in spring 2022. Harvested in late April 2021. At least 20 seeds. (Just one packet available this year!)
