Yes, but I can speak German, and the pictures are good too.
There are 50 pictures of H. transsilvanica alone (I was really interested in this), information, pictures and classifications of the other species and forms. All in all I am pleased with it.

Another out of season flowering Hepatica.  I was very happy to win this in the raffle at the SRGC Discussion Weekend.

I grow Hepatica transsilvanica 'Pink Form', but have only had it for a couple of years.

It is growing OK, I've only got an old picture, if I remember I'll post another next year when it flowers.

I'll add a couple of my pictures:
H transsilvanica 'De Buis' (same as Buis strain or form)
H transsilvanica 'Ada Scott'
and reminder that 'Connie Greenfield' (sometimes spelled as Konny) is the same as 'Elison Spence' - see this thread for more information on the name http://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=4882.305

I have pictures of some of the transsilvanicas on the list.

1. H. transsilvanica - white
2. H. t. 'Eisvogel' - white flowers with a little blue colour on the back
3. 'Elison Spence'
4. 'Karpatenkrone -  very big flowers
5. 'Supernova' - dark blue
6. 'Blue Jewel' - not on the list. I think Jurgen Peter has it as Hepatica x media but RHS as transsilvanica
7. 'Schwanensee' - similar to 'Lilacina'

Thank you Rob, Michael, Diane and Gunilla for these pictures.
I guess more will show up next spring when hepaticas will be in bloom.
Both from your pictures and Jurgens I can see that the blue h. transsilvanica in cultivation mostly has subtle variations, not like nobilis or the japanese ones.
