Carsten, Maria theresia is the most impressive!
Agree, that is lovely - is the blue of the photo true to life?

It is a little darker and a bit more into the red - very difficult to capture.

Amazing diversity in all these seedlings Carsten !  They're truly stunning little plants !

The nobilis doubles are just as beautiful and I think I can agree with Herman and Gail, Maria Theresia also gets my vote !

Just a couple of pots with young Hep. japonica.

So many great looking flowers.
Two japonica & two nobilis from my garden today.  Hope they are still with me when Storm Dennis finishes.

A true Hepatica winterfest! I love them all!

Leena: the temp. in the garage this morning was 3C (after a -17C night). But it is not that cold often and usually the back side where I keep the plants remains pretty constant at 5-6+C (more towards the spring). This is because the garage is partly placed underground and it behaves more like a cellar. A quite lucky situation that could be exploited even more.

Feasts for the eyes, guys!

The double blue one is amazing! Shame where I live is not ideal for their cultivation; but I bought 3 and have had a go.

A new one for me :

Hepatica japonica 'Sanome' - even darker, more going towards purple than on the pictures.

Carstens, is Maria Theresia the one left under. They are all impressive!  Are they all pure nobilis blood?

So beautiful flowers in all pictures! :) Double H.nobilis are so special.
Here H.pubescens and H.japonicas are in big bud outside (showing colour), and I hope it will not be too cold for them in March if they open their flowers before that. H.americana grown from seeds from Gabriela has also big buds already and it seems they are earlier than our native H.nobilis, or is it just this year, I don't know.
This picture is from today.

Leena - I really hope the weather will keep the pattern in Finland. Everything it is so early this year!
Hepatica americana looks very well and cute, as usual :) Here they would also flower as soon as possible in late March/early April when the temp. start rising; it depends how much direct sun they get.
There can be a difference of more than a week between plants with direct sun exposure and others on more shaded locations.
Hepatica acutiloba usually flowers about one week earlier than americana.

Herman, 'Maria Theresia' is the dark one at the top. 'Müssel' is left next to it and the white is just called 'Alba Plena' (from Edrom Nurseries 2016). I got the pink one as 'Yugo' but I can´t tell it apart from my 'Rubra Plena'. The others don't bear a name only numbers.
Leena, fingers crossed that there is no winter again after your sweeties started to grow ;)
