Hepatica 2014
« on: January 02, 2014, 02:09:21 PM »
Saw my first opening flower-bud of Hepatica transsylvanica 'Winterfreude' today! Our winter has been mild so far - usually they bloom later in my garden.

I'm a little worried now. The weather is mild here too, hardly any frost so far. Many of my plants, both nobilis and transsilvanica have buds that are beginning to show colour.  What will happen when the cold comes? I can't remember having hepatica flowering this early any time before.

We had this problem in January/February 2012: After very mild weather until the middle of January the temparatures dropped to -18 degrees C. Some of my Hepaticas (particularly the red filled ones) were in flower. The blooms were destroyed, but after it became milder again in the end of february new blooms appeared. None of the plants were destroyed.

That's good to know, Bolinopsis and if we are lucky we get a nice snow cover before the temperature drops.

That looks very promising, Uwe. Hope we'll see some photos then!

Isn't this a sight for sore eyes?

Uwe I've made the same cross, but I use Hepatica yamatutai marbled form. As you can see the flower is blue, like  transsilvanica and the leaf like yamatutai. I have also made a cross between Hepatica yamatutai x Cremar, I still not know how the flower look.
