Looking great, Karl!

The first flowers are always exciting to see, especially after several years of waiting. :)

Beautiful hepaticas, Karl, thanks for sharing. Springtime is not far away when i see such treasures! I am looking forward to see hepatica Eisvogel that i planted last year. And i have even sown hepatica seeds in pots both inndoor and outside ;D Some of the ones i have inndoor (cool room with light) have started sprouting! This will be a most interesting season

That is pretty cold! The only transsilvanica I have is 'Ellison Spence', but your 'Schwanensee' is very nice! I also love your H. x euroasiatica 'Prof. Friedrich Hildebrand'! :D

I sowed a lot of H. japonica seed from my friends in Japan last year, so I'm also looking forward to seeing them sprout! ;D

Wonderful to see your hepaticas, Karl. Magnetsu is absolutely stunning. It's very cold her now and everything outside is frozen but I have a few pots in my outhouse at +5 C and Hepatica maxima is about to flower.

Pepper I have used 'Cremar' several times in my cross and sometimes it give very beautiful leaves forms. Last year I got the first filled forms from my Hepatica nobilis, I have got it before in my Hepatica nobilis v. japonica, but this time it was the European species and I mean all other filled forms of Hepatica nobilis are plants found in the nature. This year I can see there again will come filled forms and this time there are also red forms :D I post some picture of them last year on SRGC forum, but you can also see them on my website: http://kalle-k.dk/Mine%20egne%20Hepatica%20krydsninger-My%20own%20Hepatica%20cross.htm
Yes I also think Hepatica nobilis v. japonica 'Magnetsu' is very beautiful, I also have real yellow forms but for me is that colour 'Magnetsu' have fantastic.
It is very cold; when it will be better I will send some more pictures.

Thanks for the great info, Karl! When I bought this plant from Rick Lupp when I was visiting his nursery, he told me that OP offspring from these plants will give you beautiful leaf patterns and curly leaves. It's nice to know that someone who has experience crossing this plant can confirm that these traits can be passed on!

Thanks for the link to the pictures of your beautiful European fully double hepatica! They are all very stunning! Your photo http://kalle-k.dk/H.%20nobilis%20flora%20plena%20'Ydun'.JPG  is a very good example of how you can sometimes find stamens hidden between the sepals. That pollen is 'Gold Dust', and I'm sure that you used it for your cross! : ;)

My japonica seeds from last year have started to germinate! :)
