My older and newer Hepaticas are opening all around the garden. In recent years I've bought a few unusual varities from both Plant Delights Nursery and Hillside Nursery. I'll share photos when they make an appearance — and when I figure out which is which!
Hepatica acutiloba 'Silver Leaf' (below). I've written about this one before as it has gorgeous mottled leaves.
Another Hepatica acutiloba 'Silver Leaf' but this one is less noticeably pink than the one above.
Hepatica henryi. I put the teal wire over the crown of this tiny plant when I put it in the ground so the squirrels couldn't immediately dig it out and toss it around as they like to do.
This is one of many self-seeded clumps in the garden. The nail clipper gives you a sense of how delicate these plants are.
The same plant 24 hours later.
