Winter aconite (Eranthis hyemalis) nestled around the base of a tree, so cheerful at this dark time of year. Below, growing in the alpines glasshouse, is Adonis amurensis 'Fukujukai', an alpine originating from Japan. They are both from the same family of Ranunculaceae.


  1. They do make a pretty splash of colour!

  2. The aconite is usually the first flowers I see in the spring even before the snowdrops! I can hardly wait!
