A fine species of Eranthis differing in most parts from the popular E. hyemalis. This species has deep green finely cut foliage which tends to in a whorl just below the flower. As each flower stem rises from the soil the leaves and stem are strongly coloured coppery-red, the red on the lower part of the stem usually being retained until they become dormant in late spring. Flowers on this species are deeper golden-yellow and maybe a little more goblet shaped. Multiple tubers per pot.
