Beauties all of them!
Interesting to see H. americana adapted to flowering so early. In our region, in the best of years with early springs, it will only start to flower beginning of March (quite rare though).

Here is the state of Hepaticas after a recent melting of the snow: H. americana taken in the woods and H. acutiloba in the garden.

So pleased I gathered what seed I could from my few hepaticas this last spring as long drying winds over the last couple of weeks have dessicated the plants and I think some may may not come away again. Even though they're the commoner kinds as almost all in NZ are, I still love them and would hate to lose them altogether.

Lovely early flowers, Michael :) By the way, why did you create this hepatica thread here instead of the Hepatica board ???

OOps! I didn't notice where the thread was - I think YT is correct - good idea for me to move it to the Hepatica board.

Michael. You have a beautiful collection of beauties. Do you dare to grow them in the garden or only in pots?

Great colour therapy :) Please post some more.
Fred - Michael also wrote an article for IRG on Hepatica - don't remember the nr.; for sure Maggi will provide the link, or you can look at the index.

Several years ago when I worked at Wisley I decided just for fun to try planting some Hepatica in the north-facing tufa walls outside the Landscape House. Not exactly the kind of situation you would expect them to grow in. To my surprise they grew, flowered regularly and are still there today. So if you are looking for an unusual choice for planting in a shady block of tufa it may be worth giving them a go.
