Product Information

A member of the buttercup family, Hepatica nobilis is a slow-growing hardy perennial with kidney-shaped, three-lobed leaves and single violet flowers. These are adorned with striking white stamens and rise to around to 10cm (4in) above the more or less evergreen foliage.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Your Hepatica enjoys cool conditions and will thrive in a partly shaded area in fertile, well-drained soil.  They're great as specimens in clay pots too with equal amounts of John Innes no 2, perlite and leaf mould. In the garden, plant them where they can be seen, at the front of a woodland garden or under deciduous shrubs.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Hepatica nobilis:

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for your Hepatica:

  • Hepaticas are slow growing and should be grown where other plants cannot smother them. Weeds should be removed as soon as they are seen.
  • Don't disturb them once planted as they hate being moved.
  • Keep newly planted hepaticas well-watered until established.
  • Give plants a dressing of fish blood and bone in the autumn.
