Liverleafs are among the first flowers of spring here, and are justifiably popular. As you can see, the foliage can take quite a beating here in more open areas (even despite having snow cover last winter ???).Here are a few, to get things started:1 - 4) Hepatica transylvanica5, 6) Hepatica nobilis (I find it very hard to capture the rich blue-purple of the flowers in photos - these are about as close as I've come.) 7, 8 ) Hepatica nobilis 'Rubra Plena'
