Everything as expected

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.

Beautiful Absolutely Beautiful

These little plants are great to keep indoor. They don't make a mess and are easy to take care of.

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 it is covered with fine hairs. Many people grow it for its beautiful flowers. Even on a cloudy day, the flower will open up and bloom.

Hepatica Has A Wonderful Aroma

They also have a fresh and pleasant scent. They attract butterflies that feed off of them. They will also provide a nice touch of color to the outside landscaping in the winter. 

These perennials can reach heights of 10 to 12 inches and are equally broad. They like to grow in well-drained, loamy soil and prefer a little sun in the spring and more shade in the summer. Their gorgeous bluish-purple flowers add just the right 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 Can Be 1-6 Inches Tall

It grows from 1 to 6 inches high. Somewhat unusually, the leaves of the hepatic don’t open until the flowers bloom. The Hepatica bears pale purple, blue, white, or pink flowers on a single stalk. The flowers are about 1/2 inch to an inch wide; one 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.

Hepatica Lives For Many Years

This perennial lasts throughout the winter and only withers when the flowers return the following spring. This perennial is native to North America and returns yearly. It does best in woodlands, which can receive hours of mixed shade and sun. However, it is challenging. It can tolerate alkaline soil rich in limestone and does well in areas with full sun.

Hepatica Loves Moist Soil

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. It can be grown from seed, but it takes years to bloom. If they are divided, the new ones may also take some time to grow pleasingly dense. But patience rewards the garden that chooses this beautiful flower.
