January: A Challenge Met

The Winter Aconite (Eranthis) and Snowdrop (Galanthus) are the first to meet the challenge of January’s icy weather. These brave little plants will even push their way through the snow to display their flowers. Subtle white snowdrops and bright yellow winter aconites have to be the real harbingers of spring.
