Hepatica nobilis in different colour shades. All
plants are in the greenhouse and only very few start to flower ...
Carsten, are they pure nobilis? The connectives aren't all pink or red, what is typical for pure nobilis?
Pyrenaica, the connectives are white to yellow.
Americana, the connectives are white to green.
Acutiloba, the connectives are green.
Pubescens, the connectives are red.

Herman, as far as you can judge from the lables, they are all pure nobilis.

I could not make out where these connectives could be situated. Could please someone explain what these are?

Thank you Carsten, maybe it is mostly pink or red and are there exceptions or the one with white connectives have pyrenaica blood.

Carsten, I like the blue colour in your filled ones, such clear blue with no red.

I went through my pictures from last spring, and as far as I can tell, all our native H.nobilis have white/whitish connectives. These are all plants grown in the wild (and some moved to garden bed).

H.americana has green connectives, at least this one.
H.japonica with red connectives, not all of them have this red connectives.
H.pubescent with white connectives, and the second one has slightly darker ones.

Hi Kris,

Nice, to spend the winter in India ;-)
Enjoy!

Thank you very much.
As far I remember the connectives vary here quite a bit in nature. I will look through my pictures

Thanks Leena, so I will adjust my administration: connectives of nobilis are white, pink or red.

Herman, I will try to look close this spring if there is much variation in our native plants.  Maybe there is. These were just pictures of some, but strangely all have white/whitish connectives.

Thanks  Leena, there is always the possibility that the connectives are different in different countries.

Here in my area of south germany you can find a lot of Hepatica nobilis populations.
In most of them, the flowers are only blue and I have no pictures of these which show the connectives. I will have a look the coming season.
Connectives from two places with a lot of colour variations like red, pink, white, some with dots or cloudy colors apart from blue or white have the following colors in the connectives:
blueish-pink, pure green, light blue, white, pink and also some in kind of red with a tint of blue.
These are only from wild populations without any gardeninfluence.

I will certainly have a look around other populations and collect all different colour findings. Probably this rules have more exeptions...
