Hepatica is in flower!

Some of our first native wildflowers to appear are Hepatica americana and H. acutiloba. H. americana is in flower now in the Garden. Of course, red maple, alders, some birches, and some other trees flower earlier, but they're not as striking, nor would we call them wildflowers, either.

Here's what the flowers look like -- the patch where we always look for it each year is near the Woodland Wildflower Garden.
