Herman, I will take more pictures with the leaves. Right now the new ones are growing and the old ones are not looking too good anymore.
Looking at your pictures - there are H. americana specimens with this sort of leaves.
Thank you Gabriela. Ten years ago I have planted in this part of the garden one Hepatica with the name americana and no Hepatica nobilis. Now there are are a lot of self sowing plants al with blue flowers. But I wasn't sure that the original plant really was americana. But if you think it is possible with that kind of leaves then I will use the name americana. Yesterday I found Hepatica falconeri on a plant market.

Now that I have H.americana seedlings, I was wondering if H.americana and H.nobilis hybridize? Perhaps I should plant them (later, for now they can grow in pots) not close to each other.

H. falconeri is something one would never find on a plant market here! (you can barely find H. americana and acutiloba actually)

Here are few leaf images that resemble your americana. There is another type with more rounded lobes, and smaller leaves.

That is for sure Leena; but hybrids are often very interesting ;)

 :) :)

Hepatica nobilis is still flowering here.
Blue, pink and also I have a small white one. :)
The only double I have is H.nobilis 'Rubra Plena', though to me it is more pink than red. Anyway, a lovely Hepatica, and I wish I had a similar one in blue (I don't know if it even exists).

Gabriela, I am enjoying them, especially the blue ones which I have most. :)
Last week opened H.japonica seedlings which I had sown 2014 and they have lived planted in the ground through two bad winters, so I'm very happy about that. The first flowers are very tiny.

Hepatica nobilis var. pyrenaica x japonica (CB33) is still flowering (It started in March). Cyclamen repandum subsp. rhodense (CB35) is on the background.

Leena your Hepaticas are  very beautiful.
This year the super hot weather destroyed lots of Hepatica flowers. Some just skipped flowering completely.
Hepatica acutiloba started nicely but suffered because of the hot weather.

Thank you Kris, your H.acutiloba is also very beautiful!
My Hepaticas as mostly our native plants which I have moved from the edge of woods in our property to my woodland bed, where they become bigger clumps (hopefully) and wild rabbits don't eat the flowers so easily.

Thanks Leena and Herman.
Last year the H.acutiloba was even bigger than now and flowered nicely
This year the hot weather intimidated the plant . I have another two pink H.acutiloba just skipped flowering . Happy at least they did not die.
Herman Your H.nobilis flora plena is out of the world.
It is impossible to get good Hepatica cultivars in North America.

Are there any double Hepatica americana or acutiloba in the wild in America?
