Commonly known as winter aconite, it’s technically a tuber, not a bulb (wondering about the difference? True bulbs are usually round or oval and if you cut it in half, you’ll see the that the bottom portion contains a tiny bud surrounded by the fleshy scales that nourish the bud; onion, narcissus and lilies are all true buds. Tubers are enlarged stem tissue and include potatoes, begonias and dahlias). We include them in our bulb sales because they are often the first nectar source in the spring – and their bright yellow blooms cheer us as well. Deer resistant as well!
