Very beautiful Peter, but I can never keep them in my garden. For some reason they always disappear :-((

Best wishes, Lesley

Thank you Lesley the commonnamed Kidneywort does only thrive well with lotsa chalk added to the growth substrate. In the wild you will only find it on very rich soils...Wish you lotsa success with this beautiful species....Peter

Thank you Peter for the soil information. We are on acid soil therefore that explains it. There are so many other plants to grow I can manage to live without it. If you can grow it you are lucky :-))

Peter, I was once told by an alpine nursery specialist that if you add Dolomite to the planting hole of a lime loving plant, with acid loving plants surrounding it, the acid loving plants aren't affected. I have grown various Asplenium ferns in this way and a Pulsatilla which are all thriving. The Hepatica plants are really too small to go to such trouble over.

Best wiishes, Lesley

Beautiful photo Peter. These flowers are such a surprising shade of blue! I found carpets of them when we were over in Drammen last year. The sight delighted me as much as this photo does :))))

Beste hilsener, Amelia
