Into Your Living Space
Winter Aconite (Eranthus hyemalis) is one of the earliest blooming spring perennials. It is in the buttercup family and has small yellow flowers. It is a very low-growing plant that does well in rock gardens, flower beds, and woodland gardens. They are great for naturalizing but can spread easily and become somewhat invasive.
This client had a river of water flowing every time there was a hard rainfall in this somewhat shaded yard. The grass didn't grow, and the earth was being eroded away. The design plan included a dry creek bed to help manage the flow during rain events as well as piping from all the downspouts to direct the water into the sewer opening. Native plants and a steppingstone path completed the look for the yard.
