This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: slow growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Exquisite, rich purple, bowl-shaped flowers top slender stems in early spring, usually as the round or slightly lobed foliage is emerging. A very rare and unusual plant, it should be planted out in a partially shaded spot, preferably somewhere you can admire it on a regular basis.

  • Garden care: Hepaticas resent being moved, so try to plant them where they can remain undisturbed for several years. Apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn or immediately after flowering.
