Now, that's a wonderful way to start the 2010 Hepatica thread.    Spring seems awfully far away at the moment but there is hope  :)

only when there is some sun the flowers opens for a few hours, this morning it is verry cold (-5C), I hope it will be a little bit warmer than most of the plants will flower, lost a few buds eaten by mice I think.
thank you for the nice card Maggy,
just a year  ago I came back from Japan with these nice things:
Hepatica asiatica 'Hatsu Hinode'
Hepatica asiatica 'Hayato'

Wow, Chris,
that red strain double is just very cool.  I rather like the H. henryi pink as well.  Interesting shading.  Can't wait until Spring!

Some very lovely ones there.
I was impressed with the red "Hayato". Very unusual color but the henry was very nice as well.

Thanks for showing

Chris,

what a rare treasure!  The contrast between the flower and its stamens is amazing.  I take it you are or will be hybridizing with it.
