    I took this picture last week... As you can see the plant was just beginning to grow and there was still snow around this Iris Katherine Hogdin. Some clumps were specacular this year but the flowers are now faded

    I got Shikouden from Fraser Thimble Farms, B.C., Canada. Just take a look at this page and you will fall in love with Hepaticas....

    http://www.thimblefarms.com/japanese hepatica.html

    I think they can be grown in zone 7 because western coast of Canada is a very warm region. Japanese Hepaticas are rather expensive... but we, orchids lovers, are used to pay more than 40 $ for a small plant!

    Some other of our liveworts are from Free Spirit Nursery (B.C., Canada too).

    I bought some in eastern Canada. I think Pico Strain is a Portuguese strain.

    Agreed. I can't quite comprehend the extent of it. To say that I'm jealous isn't even close to an understatement :rollhappy:

    Not bad at all! Mine is much older and it was a pity for years before I decided to move it on good soil.
