So perfect doubles!
It is nice that your flowering season has started, it is treat to look at pictures of flowers when mine are still so far away:).

Very beautiful flowers Carsten!
For me the last one is the best, but also the yellow one.

Very beautiful Hepatica, Carsten! I like the most: Hepatica nobilis 'Selma' and the unnamed one. They have both very special colour for a nobilis form.

They are all gorgeous!
And those in need can easily warm up from the bright colors :)

The Hepaticas are waking up in the garden. Too bad the weather will be worse tomorrow.

Beautiful Hepatica flowers all. I have to wait till May to get some flowers. Carsten your Hepatica nobilis Selma is  fantastic. I got one seedling from your precious selma seeds.  Hope to see the seedling emerging this spring from under the snow!!.

Patrick, this Hepatica looks very promising. Here it is heavy winter now. A lot of snow and temperature during the day still minus zero, this will probably be so for the whole week.

Nice to see more Hepatica flowers, either simple or doubles!
Hopefully your H. yamatutai won't be affected by the cold Herman.

We are in a polar vortex currently, it seems I may have chosen a bad year to try young H. japonica in the ground. There is snow but surely not enough for constant night temp. under -15C over a long period (down to -21C forecasted).
Luckily I managed to bring in the garage some of the potted Hepaticas and they seem OK after defrosting.

HI Gabriela your -21C seems warmer to me. In Saskatoon we are further down with -35C and with wind chill more than -40C. The polar vortex is going to stay here for 5 more days!!

Here we have at night -10C. It has been since 2012 that there has been a week with temperature below or around zero during the day and at least 3 nights below -10C. Lucky for the plants that there is some snow. I will be glad that this week will be over.

Here it is the same, and I keep my fingers crossed that all Hepaticas will survive. I have dry oak leaf protection over them and then there is about 40cm snow over them so I hope that is enough. The lowest here this winter has been -23, but it has been several week now temperatures below -10 (and mostly around -15C), and it seems like it will be the same all February. Beautiful sunny days though.

Snow is good, but I kind of envy winters like Herman's when cold and snow last only a week or two, but of course cold may do more damage when plants are more advanced.
