Gunilla your seedlings are incredibly beautiful, delicate colors and it looks like they all are virgin.

Yes Kalle, three of the four seedlings in my pot had flowers without anthers, a pink, a white/pink, and a blue one. The forth seedling had normal flowers and I used it to pollinate the others.
I got the seeds from a hepatica grower in Sweden and was told that the seed was collected from a seedling of a plant called Hjelm or maybe Hjälm.  I haven't seen this plant and don't know much about it. 
The new leaves are now emerging and they also show some variation.

A lovely strong blue colour, Michael, and with perfectly matching blue anthers. Is it perhaps a nobilis x japonica cross ?

Hey!

Here in the cold Norway has Hepatica blooming not started yet. But the cups are well underway so it's just to look forward :)

Here it was many temptations to see  :P
