Eranthis (winter aconite)
xlamyx
Winter Aconite

Eranthis (winter aconite) is a genus of eight species of flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae (Buttercup family), native to southern Europe and east across Asia to Japan. The common name comes from the early flowering time and the resemblance of the leaves to those of the related genus Aconitum, the true aconite. Unlike Aconitum, Eranthis is not poisonous.

These cheery winter aconite bulbs produce golden, cup-shaped flowers surrounded by a green collar of leaves - just like buttercups in the depths of winter! Not for the tidy gardener - Winter Aconites almost demand to be grown in bold natural drifts where they can be left undisturbed to die back naturally in spring. They love a moist soil and a shady position, so they’re perfect for under-planting among woodland trees.

Galanthus nivalis and Leucojum
xlamyx
Snowdrops and snowflakes

Galanthus nivalis (Snowdrops, meaning milk white flowers) and the similar-looking Leucojum (snowflakes) grow beautifully under deciduous magnolias and contribute to a wintry scene.

The first sight of their pure-white nodding heads peeping through the forest floor signals winter is coming to an end. These plants are very hardy, and the colder the weather, the longer the flowers last. They look best randomly placed in light shade, and can be planted in meandering drifts through a border, under deciduous shrubs in a woodland setting, or in grass under a tree. Balcony gardeners can also enjoy their charm, as they can be grown in containers .
