Eranthis hyemalis colony A. A. Reznicek colony

This is a favorite small early spring perennial with solitary, bright yellow, up-facing flowers, from European woodlands. It spreads by seed readily in gardens, and strays to woodlands in and near towns and cities in Michigan; first collected by A. A. Reznicek in Saline (Washtenaw Co.) in 2013. Eranthis blooms very early, mid-to late March and into early April in southern Michigan, and is probably somewhat overlooked, as few botanists are in the field at this time.
