Japonica seedlings, all from one batch. The first one is close to the motherplant.

And finally some japonicas. First one is 'Kouten', the others are nameless - a shame  ;)

Shades of red. All are japonica-seedlings.

I'am happy with it. And it's the only place in the garden without access for deer.

Good thing that you have your alpine house.  :) Deer love eating Hepaticas here. Some years they ate the flowers in spring, but every year they ate the leaves in the autumn. During summer when there is a lot of other things to eat, they don't touch Hepaticas.
Before we had fence around the garden, deer were a big nuisance, but now my Hepaticas are fine.
There are white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) here, and though they are hunted, there are still too much of them, because hunters also feed them to keep the populations up. They also cause a lot of road accidents.
There are lynx, which can eat deer, but mostly it eats hares. In winter when there is snow, it is always exciting to see lynx tracks.
Wolves would eat deer, but there are not enough of them.

Very nice japonicas, Simon!
Today, Simon reminded me posting some of my Hepaticas.  ;)
Here we go ...

Thank you for posting these beauties Carsten :) I like them all with no discrimination!
Your little greenhouse full of blooming Hepaticas is a dream. We don't have deer in the city but one year I was surprised to find the foliage eaten by rabbits in early spring. Since then I have to put a mesh on top of the beds.

Due to hunting restrictions, there is also deer overpopulation here in Oregon.
Here in Falls City [my home town] there is a couger which, to the best of my knowledge, has never harmed a person , pet , or livestock; and, which keeps the deer population somewhat in check. He has been seen walking past children or pets without turning his head.
