notes
A beautiful winter aconite, Eranthis Cilicica bursts forth early in the year, bringing sunshine with its small buttercup like flowers above ruffled green foliage collars. The perfect kickstart to a spring garden, it appears in February and lasts into the height of spring. Acting as a carpet to later spring bulbs, it can be left in the ground to return the following year, improving year on year.
Insights

Originating from damp and shady woodland in Eurasia, it is wonderful planted in swathes under trees or shrubs, bringing colour into the late winter garden. This variety blooms slightly later than Eranthis Hyemalis. A fantastic early food source for bees and other pollinators waking after winter.
