In Bloom: Winter Aconite
Winter Aconite brightens things up!
Eranthis, commonly known as Winter Aconite, is another early-spring bloom. These flowers are in the buttercup family, and are usually yellow (a few white species exist). They are tolerant of frost and can easily survive even under a fresh bed of snow.
Fun Fact: Like Hellebore, Winter Aconite also plays a role in Greek mythology. Legend has it that Winter Aconite grows from the saliva of Cerberus, the three-headed dog that guards the underworld.
