Woodland Plants Winter Aconite
Winter aconite is an attractive woodland plant that naturalises easily like snowdrops and wild daffodils and fritillaries. Winter aconite is for sale via our online garden centre and is popular because they are hardy and winter flowering. Plant the bulbs in humus-rich soil in sun or partial shade and let them naturalise in shady garden areas. Under trees and shrubs for instance. Please note that winter aconite is a vigorous plant that needs to be kept in check by collecting its seeds, or by digging up clumps if they propagate a little too much for your liking. Combine Eranthis with other vigorous growers like pulmonaria, hardy garden geraniums and snowdrops.
