Falls City, OR USA

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

Thank you Marc, it would be more beautiful if there was more sunshine, one flower suffers already from all the rain.

Some Hepaticas in the greenhouse start to flower.

Hepatica nobilis 'Little Abingthon' has a very dark blue similar to 'Maria Theresia'.





The plant next to 'Little Abingthon' is 'Müssel'



Hepatica nobilis 'Bergkristall' (rock crystal), first discovered in 2017 in the Bavarian Alps.

Carsten, great Hepatica's! Here the weather is still on the dark side. The Hepatica's are waiting for some more sun.

Thank you, Herman!
The japonicas started, too. A mix of colours of today...

Too of my seedlings...





... and two unnamed cultivars from Japan.





And one of my favourites, 'Sugomori'.

Flower shape is so perfect in this one! Also dark blue one is wonderful.

You have a whole range of colours in H.japonica, thank you for showing them. :)

A beautiful start for the Hepatica season Carsten!
I suppose all these beauties are pot grown? The ground is still solidly frozen here.

In 2017 I made a cross from H. nobilis 'Bavarian Blue' and a filled form of the Severin series that still produced some fertile pollen.
Yesterday and in it's F2 generation the first filled form with the spotted appearance of 'Bavarian Blue' showed up.

It is still very wet but the temperatures are rising! So the Hepaticas begin to wake up.

Hepatica transsilvanica 'Elison Spence' starts to flower. The flower will still change in getting older.
