Oh Lordy...I'm in trouble now!! I am just in love with these plants after seeing those photos! I saw that Peter Joppe of Hillside Nursery in Mass. sells a few species including the japonica. I will have some for sale of his at the American Primrose Societies National Show at the end of April. Or maybe I won't have any for sale & will keep them for myself!! ;)

Nice leaf form on that second pic, Amy. It's different from a five lobed form I have seen in Minnesota.
I think this is pretty typical of Hepatica americana flower form in northern Minnesota, although there is a lot of variation:
