Aconite, Winter aconite - Eranthis hyemalis

Bright buttercup yellow aconites flower in January, bringing little splashes of brightness to the often gloomy winter days. They prefer damp conditions in a sunny position but will tolerate partial shade such as under a tree that is yet to come into leaf.
