Hepatica (Liverleaf or Liverworts)

Hepaticas are beautiful early spring bloomers that make a nice addition to any woodland garden. Some, like H. acutiloba, bloom before the new 3-lobed leaves emerge, others bloom as the leaves are coming up or after. They are clump-forming and range in color from white to pink to blue and purple. It is hard not to be drawn to them. We certainly are. This season we are delighted to offer several different varieties.

Hepatica japonica

Hepatica japonica

Seedlings from plants we aquired from a Japanese hepatica breeder. The flowers are an outstanding and variable mix of pinks, blues and purples. Leaves may be heavily patterned. Plants are typically shipped before they bloom so we can not accomodate preferences for flower color.

Zones 4-6. 4-6 in. Full to part shade. Moist, well-drained soil. We are offering good sized plants that will bloom this spring. View additional images here

Hepatica japonica (Double Flowered Hepatica's from Japan)

We are pleased to be offering a select group of exquisite, named double-flowered hepaticas from a renowned hepatica grower and breeder in Japan. The Japanese have been propagating and selecting unique flower forms of hepaticas for hundreds of years. This is one of the oldest and most specialized breeding efforts for flower variation in the world. Some of the forms sell for thousands of dollars. We are offering a selection of some of the more affordable forms. As you can see by the photos below the form and color variation of the flowers is truly amazing. We have admired these plants and grown them for our own collection for a number of years and are delighted to finally be able to offer them for sale.

The plants are good-sized divisions with large buds that should bloom this spring. Once re-established, the plants can produce large numbers of long lasting blooms in the early spring garden.

Zone 5-8 height 4-6 in. High open shade or part shade. Moist, well-drained soil.

The Double Flowered Japanese Hepaticas sold out a lot faster than we anticipated. We will have more available this coming fall and next spring. If you would like to be on a special Double Hepatica email list, we will keep you updated. 

Please be sure to mention that you would like to be on the Hepatica list in your note and feel free to let us know if there are any particular varieties that you are most interested in, if any.

Trillium simile

Trillium simile or flexipes

New!
JEWELED OR NODDING TRILLIUM

We're not quite sure whether these are T. simile or T. flexipes. Over the years they've been identified by different people as one or the other. Over the years we've always had them mixed together, so it is possible that you will get one, the other or a hybrid of them both. But they are both so similar we feel it is OK to sell them together. T. simile, as its name suggests looks similar to both T. erectum var. album and T. flexipes. It has a large creamy white flower with a dark purple ovary. Trillium flexipes, on the other hand, has a white or pink ovary, but has the same cream colored flowers. The parent plants of these seedlings are 20 in. tall with a leaf span of 12 to14 in.

We are offering 6 year-old near-flowering to flowering-sized bare root plants.

Zones 4-8. 7-20 in. Full/dappled shade; moist, humus-rich, soil.
