I think it should not be any problem even though they grow at high altitudes in the Pyreenes and Cordillera Cantibrica/Picos de Europa. I have grown them for many years in a garden with very rainy and "non-winterish" winters. Surviving in an area with good snow cover is no problem at all, that is what they are used to. I have seen them flower as late as late June at 1 600 m. It might be an interesting detail to know that Spanish botanist do not use the var/ssp pyrenaica but simply call them H nobilis.

Hi Ulla & Susann thanks for the advice, I'll get it planted out at the weekend and see how it fares over the winter. That's interesting about the name Susann, I have seen it listed as Hepatica Pyrenaica without any mention of nobilis. Different people know plants by various names, like cyclamen hederifolium or purpurascens for instance, in catalogue's I've seen them listed as neapolitanum & europaeum which are the old names for these plants.

Who here thinks Hepatica should be included in the genus anemone? I see Hepatica nobilis described as Anemone hepatica, and the other Hepaticas just called Anemone, doing away with the whole genus.

Hi Jupiter I've seen pulsatilla been described the same way eg pulsatilla vulgaris = anenome vulgaris. In answer to your question, no I don't, it & pulsatilla should be left alone.

Could be, although the prominent veins might suggest hellebores too. 
Here are H. nobilis seedlings:

Not Hellebore seedlings. I had planted Hepatica seeds where these seedlings are, not sure what type they were, have forgotten. Thanks for the help.

I did a trade so these could be Hepatica Acutiloba seedlings.

On a recent family trip to ironbridge in Shropshire, I decided as it was not too far away to pay a visit to ashwood nursery, there I picked up this loverly little hepatica americana which as you can see has started to give me some loverly little early flowers in time for Christmas.
