Four years ago I bought a sharp-lobed hepatica from Prairie Moon Nursery. Until now it produced only leaves, but this year it's finally bloomed.

I was hoping for blue, my favorite color of hepatica, but ended up with pink. But any color of hepatica is beautiful. Hopefully I'll find a blue specimen among the five round-lobed hepaticas I ordered from eBay for planting around the rhododendron.
