Nice foliage Simon. After the flowers are gone, what else remains :)
It is great to have marbled foliage for Hepatica.

Here the last Hepaticas are still flowering but going over soon. These pictures are from the past week.

Despite the late spring the Hepaticas are looking great Leena! Including the japonicas; tough little plants.
Here we are approaching the seeds season, it's been unusual warm for the first part of May.

Gabriela, thank you. :) H.japonicas seem quite tough here, more than I thought. After few more years I will be wondering how to tell self sown seedlings apart from H.nobilis seedlings. :) I hope.

Leena, great Hepatica's!
They seems to flower very well in your garden for this year.

Thank you Herman! Mostly they are doing well, I lost some this bad winter, but most of them are doing very well, and I am so happy with them!

Here, the temperatues have been unseasonably cold and much more rain than usual. We have had 57 inches [143 cm] since October. many things that are usually early have not broken dormancy yet.

Last of my flowering Hepaticas, picture taken last week-end. 
'Louise Kohler'
I have thought this is sterile form, but what do you think of the pistils of the two left flowers?

Leena, nice clump from Hepatica acutiloba 'Louise Koehler', here there were only a few flowers.
Nice to see some pistils, have you at the moment other acutiloba in flower to cross with? It is worth to try.

Unfortunately no  :(, all other H.acutiloba flowered earlier. Maybe 'Louise Kohler' grows in more shady spot and that is why it is later flowering.

Leena, here it is also later in flower (April) then the others.
