Plants looked healthy

Everything as expected

JoAnne Ayres
Sharp-Lobed Hepatica

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the plants I ordered from you really do grow next spring. I have planted them as instructed and marked them so that I will know where they are supposed to be. I have never ordered plants that arrived looking like yours did but I am hoping they grow next spring. Until they appear, I really can't give a valid review!

Hepatica bare root

All bare root Hepatica arrived in well secured plastic bag. The bare roots arrived during cold weather. Tennessee kept me well informed and package suffered no cold damage. All blooms are white, would aluminum sulfate make em blue? I am well pleased with packaging, growth and communication.

Hepatica is a Charismatic Perennial Flowering Plant

Hepatica flowers are colorful and can bloom in shades of pink, purple, blue, and white. Around the flowers are three brackets of green leaves. The stem of the plant is covered with fine hairs. Many people grow this plant for its beautiful flowers. Even on a cloudy day, the flower will open up and bloom.

They also have a fresh and pleasant scent to them. This plant also attracts butterflies that feed off of them. The plant will also provide a nice touch of color to the outside landscaping in the winter. This plant was once used as a medical herb and is an effective treatment for people fighting a live disorder.

These perennials can reach heights of 10 to 12 inches and are equally broad. This perennial likes to grow in well-drained, loamy soil, and it prefers a little sun in the spring months and more shade in the summer months. The flowers bloom on the hepatica are gorgeous, bluish-purple colors, adding just the right amount of color to any garden.

This perennial looks excellent planted anywhere, from a flower bed to a natural area or along a sidewalk or driveway. This delicate-seeming little flower, also named liverwort because its three-lobed leaves reminded someone of the human liver, does best in hardiness zones 3 to 9.

Hepatica is one of the First Flowers to Bloom in Spring in Well Drained, Loamy Soils.

The hepatica grows from 1 to 6 inches high. Somewhat unusually, the leaves of the hepatic don’t open until the flowers bloom. The plant bears pale purple, blue, white, or pink flowers on a single stalk. The flowers are about 1/2 inch to an inch wide; one plant can have many flower-bearing stalks.

The colorful colored components of the flowers are not actual petals but sepals. They surround the stamens and are supported by oval green bracts with rounded or blunted tips. The leaves are also borne on stalks, and the oval lobes are all the same size. They begin as a light green when they open, then turn darker over time.

This perennial lasts throughout the winter and only withers when the flowers return the following spring.

This perennial is native to North America and is a perennial, which means it returns yearly. It does best in woodlands, which can receive hours of mixed shade and sun. However, the plant is quite challenging, can tolerate alkaline soil rich in limestone, and does well in areas with full sun.

Ideally, the hepatica needs moist soil and snow covering in the winter, though frost injures it. The bloom season is April to May, though the flowers can appear as early as February in warmer climates. Hepatica can be grown from seed, but it takes years to bloom. If the plant is divided, the new plants may also take some time to grow pleasingly dense. But patience rewards the garden that chooses this beautiful flower.
