Could someone identify this flower. I bought it as a very small pot plant from a flower stall late 2009, but unfortunately the label was missing. It looks like some kind of alpine plant. It grew to about 6" in height.

Do you have a photo of the leaves, or can you describe them?

Hi Dirt, Pamg and Bulbaholic.

Thanks very much for your replies. I have attached the original photo I took of this flower. It didn't have any leaves at all. I have now checked out Winter Aconite in my New Flower Expert book and the flower is totally identical.. Once again many thanks for your help.

I am glad that I waited for the second photo - I was going to say "not winter aconite" as they have this fringed collar behind the petals and I could not see it!
So now I agree. The original photo was very good though, Jane.

Many thanks for your help and your very kind comment on my original photo. Photography is my hobby and I often do a little processing on my flower photos in Photoshop and put them on a website. I am very fond of flowers and birds and photograph these most of the time.

Best Wishes
