Eranthis Hyemalis

Question from Stuart Morris

It suggests that these can be planted 'in the green'. Can I move already flowering plants?

Eranthis hyemalis

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

Aconites are the brilliant midwinter counterpoint to snowdrops'modern charm. They were identified with the classical aconite, which was a poisonous herb dedicated to Hecate, a moon goddes in Greek mythology. There is a story that Cerberus, the fearsome watchdog of hell, spat out venomous saliva from which the aconite sprouted. An unpleasent story, though a well-founded one, as aconite is one of the most poisonous plants in cultivation.
