Hepatica nobilis var. glabrata is a smaller, very slow growing pure white variety from Sweden, with pale green hairless, evergreen foliage.Height 8-10cm.
H. nobilis var. glabrata is probably best grown in an alpine house, because of its slow rate of growth. If you prefer to grow it in the rock garden it 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.
