The PBS wiki [1] tells me "Eranthis cilicica and Eranthis hyemalis are 
sometimes considered to be conspecific, but as garden plants they are 
distinct. "

Anyway I never had any luck with bought tubers, even after soaking them.

Guessing, the plants seem to only grow whilst temperatures stay just 
above freezing.

I grew some from seed, but managed to kill most of the seedlings by 
bringing them indoors (too warm).

They're a nice thing to have, and can be spectacular in large quantities.

Celandine (ficaria verna) looks similar from a distance and since it is 
a weed, presumably easier to grow.
