Growing Hints: Plant tubers 3 inches deep and 4 to 6 inches apart in the fall for spring flowers. Tubers do not like to be dry and can be soaked overnight before planting for a faster start. Shriveled tubers can be re-hydrated by placing them in moist sand or peat moss for a couple of days before planting. Plant in large masses for the greatest show of color. Divide tubers when dormant.
Interesting Facts: A member of the buttercup family, the Winter Aconite is native to Europe and is one of the first flowers to appear in the spring-sometimes as early as January.
