I agree with you Leena. When we also had warm weather in January sometime ago lots of plants suffered. Last year we had very cold temperature but  record amount of snow.
I think that helped the Hepaticas
Some more seedlings from the garden today

Here are  two more 1.Hepatica nobilis and 2. cross with Bergfexing.
Both are lovely.  I hope to grow them to be nice plants in the future.

Lots of Hepatica plants and seedlings Kris! All beautiful, interesting to see all the seedlings from Bergfexing cross.

Kris, you have really nice Hepaticas, and such big clumps of older ones!
Here to my surprise my Hepatica transsylvanica plants have suffered a lot last winter, and some show no sign of life yet.
I earlier wrote that all my older H.pubescens plants have died, but now couple are starting to grow and are not dead, though I don't know if they will flower. Here is picture of a white H.pubescens planted last summer. Really pretty and I'm so happy it has survived.
'Hakurin' is doing well, and also 'Shirayuki'

Happy that your pubescens is up and well Leena :) plus the H. japonica forms.
Also H. transsilvanica didn't perform too great after a super cold winter. The foliage grows well now but some didn't flower.

Few H. americana from last week hiking, probably done by now with our spring turning fast into summer.


This one has larger leaves than usual

In the garden, few are still in flower:
H. americana with a multipetal tendency I like to say. There must be a gene (or more) that doesn't switch so easily for doubling, like it happens in H. nobilis and H. japonica.
704813-0

An odd H. americana because usually the new foliage is not bronze, this is specific for H. acutiloba.
704815-1

It wasn't a great spring for H. acutiloba in general. They flower a bit earlier when it was very cold and rainy. One that still holds on.

Kris, you have so nice first time flowering Hepaticas!

Gabriela, beautiful plants and pictures! I like so much your multipetal flowers, and also the one with dark foliage is special. Here my multipetal plants are still in bud, but they have all survived winter well, as they should.

Flowering Time is over and i have already sown my seeds but i found some time now.
I have posted this somewhere else before.

Two Hepatica japonica very well suited for cross pollination
the color on both is actually different (blues and violets are difficult to capture), as a good friend of me put it this season "some of these flowers have to be seen in reality" 🙂
The white nichirin-zaki with the dots, called sudare-line in Japanese (for the sake of simplicity we call it cow-spots) has deeply violet markings and a ring of just as violet mutated Anthers
The other one, also a nichirin-zaki is just plain deep violet, and way darker than the picture shows

The Bergfexing children are very interesting kris!
What a nice selection Gabriela!

Yes the flowering wasn't too great Herman, but also the unfavorable weather during flowering made it for fewer pictures, especially taken in the wild. A couple of times I went into the woods in April, it was too cold for the flowers to open.

Thanks Simon - interesting japonicas, who knows how many seedlings with 'cow-spots' will now arise :) I didn't know about this term.

Leena - the white one is much prettier in reality; the flower start with a light lilac hue and open to white.

Leena, great Hepatica's!
They seems to flower very well in your garden for this year.
The drought and high temperatures are finally over here. Next week there will be some more rain and normal temperature around 20°C.
