  1. Interesting – because I’m not familiar with these flowers.

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      Hi Esther
      I think they are becoming more popular especially to offset the snowdrops

  2. Yvonne Ryan says:

    Gosh how lovely, can’t remember ever seeing one! Are they a bulb? Like cold weather or what?

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      Hi Yvonne
      They are corms I think but I think it is better to plant in the green. They like same conditions as snowdrops etc

  3. Chloris says:

    They are lovely grown with snowdrops. If you add Cyclamen coum it looks like bacon and eggs. Do they all spread like Eranthis hyemalis?

      Beautiful Helen. Ruffled Elizabethan courtiers come to mind.

    2. Helen Johnstone says:

      Hi Chloris
      I dont know how robust they are compared to hyemalis, I am assuming thatd they will be slower to establish and spread

  4. Helen Johnstone says:

    Hi Anna
    Thats a wonderful description and I know thats how I will see them now

  5. Cathy says:

    I can appreciate how bright these are but they don’t appeal to me in the least – is it the colour, do you think?

    What a lovely selection of aconites. I’ve yet to add any but I’m sorely tempted… I particularly like what appears to be the softer butter yellow of the E.schwefelglanz.

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      Hi Sara
      You are right the schewefelglanz is a softer buttery yellow. I only got mine this year so I don’t know how well it will establish
