Carsten, japonica x pyrenaica is very impressive, especially the anthers. Probably it is better for the garden as japonica. I have a Hepatica nobilis var. pyrenaica x japonica in our garden that flowers well but it is sterile https://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=17578.150  « Reply #156 on: March 16, 2020, 03:22:32 PM »
Is yours fertile?
Dear Herman, it is the first flower, so I don´t know. At first glance I would say yes. I have some 20 seedlings of this cross and I will test them in the garden this year. Yours is a very good bloomer!

Carsten, that Hepatica transsylvanica is very early. Is it ‘Blumenstadt Erfurt’?
Beautiful picture with the snow!
It is 'Winterfreunde' and I edited the post.

Another two white ones.
Hepatica japonica 'Yumegokoti' and a seedling of japonica x pyrenaica.


So beautiful both of them but I am very partial to the seedlings :) and to all Hepatica simple flowers with colored anthers.

And H. transs. 'Winterfreunde' is a dream! I raised a few seedlings, non-flowering yet; I hope the cold would keep them dormant when they'll reach flowering age.
How cold it is in you region right now?

Here ‘Winterfreude’ is still dormant. We have had the last two days  some frost (-3°C) but no snow. We are about 10m above sea level. Today there was some sun, but the temperature was to low to open some new  flowers.

No flowering is possible here, like Leena says at least until April outdoors.
So, we admire the foliage when possible :) Friday was a good hiking day: sunny, albeit quite cold. On slopes with enough light the snow is starting to melt.

Thank you Herman.
Most often H. americana foliage is marbled in exposed situations, although few specimens can retain green color, or have uniform reddish leaves.

I don't know what flowers these plants have; it is a hillside I still have to explore in the spring!  :)

Gabriela, very nice leaves. Last summer I noticed some wild H.nobilis had marbled leaves in spring and early summer, but later in autumn they were even coloured. I have some plants that I will keep an eye on to see if they are marbled again next spring/summer.

How cold it is in you region right now?

We had double-digit minusgrades for some nights, not below -12C. Light frost during daytime and the snow is melting in the sun. As autumn was mild, many Hepaticas outside started to grow a little bit and some even had flower buds coming up.

Leena, for H. americana only the winter foliage looks like this, the new leaves will be green. Haven't seen any H. americana with marbled leaves during growth.
Maybe some crosses of H.americana with H. nobilis var. pyrenaica or japonica cv. will have this nice feature.

Thank you Carsten, it is quite cold; even in our region when it gets below -12/-15C it is considered a bit too much (it can get even lower especially when we get into
a polar vortex, but not always happens). I am glad to hear H. trann. 'Winterfreude' behaves well at these temp.

I also noticed some H. nobilis and H. japonica with advanced flower buds when I put them in the cold frame. H. americana and acutiloba know better to be patient.

This year's annual national hepatica show in Tokyo has been cancelled due to the COVID-19, organiser said.  :(

Stay safe ;)
