even than than the snowdrop the winter aconite comes into bloom.
Each flower is on a separate stalk a few inches high, and has
six yellow petal-like sepals. Immediately below is a whorl of
greenery composed of three deeply-divided leaves. The leaves from
the root appear a little later than the flowers. They are on long
stalks, are round in outline and cut into narrow segments. This
is a naturalized plant, now to be found in woods and plantations.
