Plant Families / Hepatica - Liverleaf
Noted for their ephemeral beauty and early blooms, Hepatica are small, clump-forming, semi-evergreen perennials with 3 to 5-lobed leaves and anemone-like, blue, violet, pink or white flowers in early spring. Blooming with early daffodils, forsythias, redbuds and bluebells, they are choice plants for woodland gardens and shaded rock gardens. Native to central and northern Europe, Asia and eastern North America, Hepatica perform best in rich soils in shady sites. Low-maintenance, they look best placed in clumps of two or three, or scattered about under trees with other woodland plants.
