Sharp Lobed Hepatica

Sharp Lobed Hepatica (Hepatica acutiloba)

In bloom March 26 - April 7. The three parted leathery leaves of this species grow very close to the ground. The brown-green color and shape somewhat resemble the lobes of a liver. Flowers open before leaves appear and are white or pink, often growing up from a layer of last year's dead hepatica leaves.
