Winter Buttercups are a sweet addition to the early spring woodland garden. These deer resistant, bright golden-yellow petite flowers are easy to grow and prefer humus rich soil and partial shade. Winter buttercups naturalize and re-seed, so it’s best to find a location that allows room to grow. (Eranthis cilicica)

Plant Information

Winter Buttercup or also known as Eranthis cilicica is best to be planted in the fall. These bulbs prefer moist soil, full sun to partial shade and places to naturalize. Great for woodland areas, In borders, rock gardens and under trees and shrubs. Once they have bloomed, let the foliage die back to allow the bulb to regenerate for the next season growth. If the Winter Buttercups are becoming overgrown or you would like to move them, the best time to dig up is late spring, just as the foliage dies back.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
