The wildflowers bloomed and faded so quickly last weekend that it may be difficult to find this one in our area now, but it’s worth a try.
Hepatica is a delicate little white or lavender flower with basal leaves.
The leaves grow directly from the base of the plant instead of on the stem. They often hide under last autumn’s leaf litter but you’ll have to find them to know which variety of Hepatica you’ve found: Sharp-lobed Hepatica or Round-lobed Hepatica.
