    1. Hi there! Yes it is a double form of Hepatica japonica. The next picture is another subtly different cultivar. I do have cultivar names for both on the labels and will add them tomorrow as I can’t recall just now.


        1. They are indeed. Also expensively addictive. Edrom Nurseries in Northumberland have a very good range of them and is where I got these two from – have a look at their website. They have a stand at our show on saturday and my wallet is cringing already!

  1. Swoons indeed! Beautiful photography Darren. I particularly loved Hepatica japonica โ€“ double blue 1. It seems your world is waking up just as mine is turning red and gold. (And the gumtrees just drop all year round but there is a lot of bark being shed in swathes in Autumn!).

    1. Thank you so much. I love that Hepatica too. Good job too as it is the most expensive one I have ever bought! You should see todays weather before thinking spring has arrived. Winter is back with a vengeance!

    1. Thank you. Bulbs are really my speciality these days. I can guarantee to have one in flower every day of the year. The Iris is lovely but a real challenge unless grown under glass and watered very carefully. It rots away with the slightest excuse! Iris warleyensis has similar colouring and I find it much easier.๐Ÿ˜„
