That is so early! Here they flower at the end of April usually.

Mid May before I see hepatica blooms here. I'm so jealous of the weather in most of Europe.

Right now I'm kind of in mourning because my dog ate the seeds I had potted up in an unheated room at the back of the house.  Didn't think she would eat pots of dirt. I was wrong.

Did you have any organic fertiliser, such as bone meal, in it? The smell would be enough for a dog to eat it.

Try chilli powder or pepper powder!

Herman Mylemans: Love your nobilis.

My first foray into hepatica - hepatica abutiloa!

657540-0

Don't think it will survive in my hot and dry weather, but just want to try and complete some sort of journey!

Some flowers started to open in the cold greenhouse. These are all seedlings and first time bloomers.

The filled nobilis are among the earliest to start. These are all unnamed.

They are all so beautiful Carstens! A joy to watch the various forms/colors.

I brought indoors (cold garage) few pots from my petite collection and H. japonica plants are always the first trying to bloom. Maybe few flowers shortly :)

Wonderful, Carsten.
14629 has very nice flowershape and I also like the first one with dark center, but the filled nobilis are my favourite ones.
It is interesting that they are earlier than normal nobilis.

Here this winter may be a challenge to H.japonicas. On the other hand it is quite mild and ground is not frozen deep and no snow, but when the weather is so warm (above freezing) they have flower buds well developed already now and there are bound to come some cold weather still. I keep my fingers crossed. :)

Thank you Anne and Leena!
Sorry for the horrible 'name'. It is a seedling of Hepatica pubescens 'Hohobeni'.

Carsten, beautiful Hepatica's! Here a lot of Hepatica's in the garden are waiting for a bit sunshine. The storm Chiara has passed, but luckily no damage.

Is anyone of the forumists visiting either the Ueno-Show in Tokyo Feb. 22th/23th or the Sanjo-Show near Niigata Feb 29th/March 1st?
IŽam going to visit each show on both days and would be happy to meet other Hepatica enthusiasts.

Carstens, I will be going to the shows at both Ueno and Sanjo.  I am supposed to meet a friend from Germany.  Is it possible that you might be a member of this group?
