February Plant Star
Winter Aconite (Eranthis hyemalis)

Every garden with deciduous trees should have this plant. It's a perfect spring flower. It grows under deciduous trees and shrubs. It needs full sun in the spring when the leaves are off these plants. In very early spring it sends up beautiful buttercup yellow flowers that can carpet the ground. Winter aconite flowers long before any other plant often coming up through the snow to do so. Its very hardy to zone 3 and needs no care once its planted. By late spring all traces of the plant have vanished again until next year. It does however need to be cold stratified before it will germinate. Best way is to sow seeds directly into the ground in late fall early winter in an area that will not be disturbed, then wait for the flowers which can take a few years to emerge. Winter Aconite brings brightness to the garden just as winter is looking to depart a joy to those who find winter depressing and can see that spring is on its way. Will self seed over time and produce large drifts of these beautiful flowers. Who could not love this plant.

Add this to your lawn and stop having to fertilze it. Clover fixes nitrogen which helps your grass. If you want less maintenance and a greener ‘lawn’ this is a must. More info.
More about natural lawns.
Tolerates heat and drought extremely well and also fixes nitrogen so it helps fertilize the plants around it. Trefoil is a low growing bushy plant that also tolerates foot traffic and cutting very well making it an ideal plant for walkways and inclusion in a lawn, or an interesting border plant. Great for hot dry areas. More info
