Hepatica nobilis (mixed colours) has single flowers including shades of pink, blue and white from February to March. The handsome glossy evergreen, three-lobed foliage can be beautifully marbled. The leaf size is very variable, but the lobes are usually rounded. Height 9-15cm.
Hepatica nobilis should be planted on a cool, well-drained slope in a light ‘fluffy’ soil rich in leaf mould. It is essential that they are exposed to early spring sunshine, but they must receive plenty of shade immediately after flowering and especially during the heat of the summer. They will thrive under deciduous trees and shrubs or in crevices in the rock garden, performing best where there is good humidity. They respond well to a top-dressing of leaf-mould in autumn and an annual feed of fish, blood and bone in late winter. Remove old leaves just before flowering.
