Hello Maggie,I am very well thank you and thanks for asking.I had almost forgotten how to post the pics.However,contrary to most people's conception I do have other hobbies and the computer isn't one of them but I do enjoy looking in on the forum.Incidentally,I included the stages of TENGINBAI for your benefit as that how yours should be looking,if not now later.

This is a 5"pot full of H.nobilis var.pyrenaica.The seed was sown in 06 and is still in the original pot but I show it to illustrate the variability.

Nothing special here but thought you might like to see pictures of mostly seedlings growing 15/20 to a 3ltr.pot.pricked out in 2007 from sowings in 2004.The first three pics.just show a range of colours that you can expect from H.jap. not including the doubles of course.
Pictures 004/6/7/and 8 are from nobilis pyrenaica and a good form of a jap.with red stamens not unlike the selected one posted by Ian Christie.There will be one or ywo specials from this batch I hope.

A recent mention of Severin Schlyter, the Swedish hepatica grower, reminded me of this little hepatica. A long time ago, I had some hepatica seeds from the AGS exchange donated by him, and of 2 that germinated, this one has remained with me. It was listed as H. nobilis glabrata dwarf. It is about half the size of the other nobilis, the light green leathery leaves being a max of 3cm across and the flowers about 1.5 cm across on stems about 3-4 cm long. It breeds true and is always white. I've been busily crossing the two remaining plants I have to try and ensure some seed set this year. Does anyone else grow this form?
The photo is a little misleading - the dwarf in front looks as big as the japonica behind because of the perspective.

I happen to grow Hepatica nobilis "Glabrata". My plant was given to me by Severin some ten years ago. It is identical to yours, Anne, as far as I can judge from your photo. My plant is a slow grower but even so it is a strong plant. I have never had attacks by fungus on my plant for example.
The name "glabrata" is botanically accurate by the way as it refers to a scientific study of this particular subspecies in southern Sweden. Since this study limits the range of "glabrata" geographically to Sweden only, similar plants from Denmark listed by Jurgen Peters in his recently published book "Hepatica" should not be named "glabrata" if I am right.

Best regards
Einar
