Murasaki is very cute.

Are the varieties easier to grow than the type species?
 do you get volunteer sowing around? not me.
 are the seeds collected by the ants? 2 years in a row that I miss them.

I have to point out Véronique that I wrote ex. Murasaki for the fragrant seedling (it is not the true H. japonica Murasaki Choui). I didn't grow many H. japonica cultivars from seeds but I see that only few seedlings will come true to the mother plant. In any case, one will obtain seedlings with nice variations and can retain the best looking.

I suspect hybrids could be more vigorous than the species, but then it probably depends what species you are referring to.

Yes, the ants will carry away the seeds very fast when ripen. You should read through the Hepatica threads from a few years back, besides stunning pictures, there is a lot to learn.

Hepatica japonica Gyousei is also scented - the perfume fills the greenhouse on sunny days in early spring (can’t come soon enough....) It’s a super bright cerise pink too.

Thanks Carolyn, that's a very nice cultivar after the images I found.
I am starting to think the fragrance may be associated with the color: pink (or close by) for H. japonica, white for H. acutiloba and blue for H. americana.
But maybe others will post about other fragrant Hepaticas in different colors :)

Fragrance of Hepatica. Something to pay attention to in the next spring.
