In my youth, I toyed with the possibility of breeding hepatica with our native specimens.
  After all, no one else was doing it, I naively thought.  (I was only 18 years old then.)  :rolleyes:

Very glad I didn't go down that road...

You have so many beauties, Michael!

Rick, who knows, you could have made a fortune by now :o Think of the fabulous Japanese cultivars ;D

Those pics could have been taken in southern Minnesota, too, complete with the moss and the Asplenium rhizophyllum.
Although I have to say, the hepatica is exceptionally richly colored.

The walking fern, especially, seems to love moss covered limestone here.

Hepatica can get the red coloured leaves if growing in sun and it still is cold. I have seen it here too but not often that much. The walking fern however, I've never seen - it doesn't exist here.

But I have never seen a hepatica as blue as kalle-k's!
