You'd better get to The Flower Factory before me, or there won't be any left! I love Hepatica and silvery variegation sounds great. What does it look like in fall? Does it turn ruby like the species acutiloba/nobilis var. acuta?


What a lovely little plant, which I've never heard of before; it's not even listed in my "Perennials for American Gardens". It looks like a small version of an anemone, Snowdrop, anemone sylvestris, which is horribly invasive in my garden; I read on Wikipedia that it's sometimes grouped with anemones.


MMD — No significant fall color change. In the third and fourth photos you can see fall foliage after being buried under snow. I would say it turns green and brown rather than the green and silver of summer.

Altoon — I first planted Snowdrop anemone in 2004 and have added more since then, but it is very slow to grow or spread in my garden. Still, I may be in for a surprise one of these days.

I think Hepaticas should grow for you and the foliage is lovely all year long. It is probably not listed in "Perennials" because it is a spring ephemeral, but the leaves last in my garden.

That photo showing the fuzzy stems makes one want to pet it. They are so tiny yet beautiful.

I would guess that Altoon's Anemone sylvestris have more sun than Linda's.

Glorious photos and yes, this plant is new to me too.


You have sold me. I want some. :)
