Product Description

Hepatica

Hepatica nobilis is a little evergreen perennial found growing in rich forests across the United States. The blooms are most usually blue or lavender, albeit white structures may be found at times, particularly in southern regions, and they also may be different shades of pink. The exact color mostly depends on the soil type they grow. What seems to be the petals are in fact the sepals, and three bracts encompass every bloom. The quantity of sepals on every blossom ordinarily changes somewhere around six and twenty. The flowers open their fullest on sunny days and stay open for a few weeks. The leaves are heart formed at the base and have three flaps. Over the winter, the leaves cover considerably more and are not observable. These plants are shipped bare root.

 This plant is easily identifiable by a yellow center, three glossy leaves, and fuzzy white anther. Pink, purple, and blue are typical colors found in the wild, but it can be found in white or red under rare circumstances. In addition to its color options, fast growth makes this plant an excellent choice for gardening and landscaping. Its resistance to night frost is a significant contributor to the ease of growth.

Hepatica stays green all year long because of its chilly origins!

 This plant sprouts up to seven stems per plant, but many choose to landscape with or plant it in their garden because of its early bloom time. A field of these will burst with color as soon as April as opposed to May. Outside of gardening, Hepatica is widely known for its use in homeopathic remedies. Historically, it has been used to cure liver disease. It also has medicinal properties, which can alleviate bronchitis, inflammation, and gallbladder complications.

 Hepatica hardiness zones is mostly 4-8.

 

The Hepatica is shipped bare root.

    Indian Pink bareroot ..

    Apr 26, 2022 Reviewer: jon arnow owner opf Alpine Distributors Nursery

    Planted them as per instructed,,,I have been raising Nursery stock for almost 50 years now...I know and understand the look of dormant plants when i see them..I unpacked them carefully and planted and watered them immediately.. They have good drainage and in the shade a bit...A bit small...But the old rule applies..The first year , they sleep, the second year they creep...the third year , they leap...

    Received already sprouted. I was afraid that if I planted it outside that it wouldn't make it so I planted it in a small pot inside and it is alive and growing.

    , full of sprouts and ready to grow.

    My plants came bare root, full of sprouts and ready to grow. I planted them in humus-enriched soil and they have taken off in their pot. With a little hardening off, they will soon be ready for their new home in my woodland area where I hope they will continue to thrive. I am very pleased.
