Crumbs, Garry, just as well you included that nice  big flower to distract me or I might have fainted with the shock of  minus  30 temperatures  :P

Balder and Ydun are lovely, Kalle.  It's freezing outside but I have one pot on my window-sill with seedlings flowering for the first time.

My First Hepatica of the season bought in the frost free tunnel 5 weeks ago and now flowering.

-30 this morning but at least the sun is out.
@ Garry: Lovely - spring will come! What species (cross) ist it? It has unusual leaves (to my badly informed european eyes...)
@ Gunilla: What wonderuful delicate shades to brighten up your house!

Repot when I found these roots. It is a H.nobilis Lavender and the main bud was rotten:

It seems like everybody has some hepatica starting to bloom!  :)  Looking forward to seeing more. Most of mine are still in bud, but H. transsilvanica, H. x media and one of my seedlings from H. japonica have started to bloom recently.

My seedlings from Gunilla's seeds have started to flower! The first ones ex 'Selma' are a lovely shell pink.

Uwe, I think your H. pubescens is beautiful with the contrasting red center and I really like the rich pink colour of your seedling Peppa.

Lovely soft colour, Anne. I do remember sending you hepatica seeds but if the seedling is ex Selma I think the seed must have come from Gunhild. I too have seedlings from Gunhilds seeds that are going to flower for the first time and it's very, very exciting.

I do love the dark centre on the pubescens seedlings. I'm hoping it can be transferred into some hybrids. Has anyone tried?
Gunilla, I apologise - you are probably right.
