As yet, no signs of floral life here.
Gerry passed away  at home  on 25th February 2021 - his posts are  left  in the  forum in memory of him.
His was a long life - lived well.

Chris,

I'm really enjoying your fotos.  I have but a few more common Hepaticas, but plan to get some named sorts this Spring and it's nice to see the variety.  I'm particularly fond of the semi-doubles, although I could see getting overly enamoured with the full doubles.  Amazing what has come from this rather humble genus.  Good things in small packages.

thanks,

We have the worst winter in 23 years, frost and a thick layer of snow and only our Hepatica shows that spring is on its way. Last year we got the bright yellow Hepatica japonica and this is the first time we see it in flower. Three years ago we got seeds of a good friend. He uses Hepatica japonica T7-2 as the parent plant. He wrote to us, that when he uses T7-2 as the parent (mother) plant, there can be double and semi-double forms in the seed plants. Last year there was flower in a few of the seed plants and there was 4 semi-double, and this year there is one which has fully double flower.

These are all too stunning for words.  I agree, the yellow one with the ring of red anthers is unbelievable.   I love the various petalloid stamen forms.  Ha, I finally see some foliage here too.

Sorry Luc,I am wide awake but the hepaticas are only just waking up.I have'nt even given them frost protection this year so I think they are sulking.In any case, I thought that you may have tired of seeing them by now.

Gunda og Kalle, Hvor er den da smuk :o   
What a beautiful yellow hepatica.  I love the contrasting red anthers.
I am thankful for all your photos - thanks for posting.   My plants are all out under the snow.
