Eranthis Overview

Genus containing 9 herbaceous, clumping, tuberous perennials originating from damp, shady forested regions in Europe and Asia. They have been naturalised in more northern European areas and in North America. They are known as winter aconite and are typically grown for their flowers, which are cup-shaped and either yellow or white. Foliage is palmately lobed or pinnately divided and this genus is well placed under deciduous trees or shrubs, where it can form a carpet of flowers.
