|Winter Aconite or Eranthis|
The first blooming flowers at the end of winter are often the ground-hugging Winter Aconite or Eranthis. They are popular ornamental plants native to southern Europe and east across Asia to Japan.
These yellow perennials are among the first to appear in spring, as early as January in mild winters. These sunny little perennials are frost-tolerant and survive even under snow cover.
|Narcissus or daffodils|
They are native to meadows and woods in Europe, North Africa and West Asia, with a center of distribution in the Western Mediterranean and many species and hybrids are used widely in gardens and landscapes around the world.
