Sharp Lobed Hepatica

Sharp Lobed Hepatica (Hepatica) also goes by the name Liverleaf and Liverwort. It grows from Canada to the southern states of the United States. It is a very small perennial, but the colors and looks from it make it worth it. It is a very small perennial only growing to less than a foot and has the same width. This plant needs to be planted in moist soil. When the earth gets too dry, the growth stops, and the plant will start to turn brown and die. If the soil is moist and the plant gets the right mixture of sun, it will expand itself and come back year after year. Each year that it comes back it will be thicker and more extensive. This plant is suitable for beginners because it needs no maintenance.

Sharp-Lobed Hepatica is seen growing along woodland slopes and areas where other plants may not develop.

It looks close to a buttercup. It has many medicinal uses. It can be used to help with colds, coughs, cramps, pregnancy pains and joint pains. The blooms are tiny and white. The petals look close to a star shape. This perennial has a slight smell.

To plant hepatica roots, first prepare the soil. Dig a hole that is deep and wide enough that it will accommodate the entire root without bending. Hepatica prefers well-draining soil. Mix compost in with the soil so that the mixture is airy and not compacted. Leaf compost is an excellent addition to keep moisture without becoming waterlogged. Place the root in the ground so that the crown is level with the surface. Gently compact the soil around the root, taking care not to make it too firm and not to cover the top of the crown. Water well after planting and when the soil dries out.

Beautiful well-rooted plants arrived quickly. There were more plants in the bundle thatn the 10 that were advertised, so I'm especially delighted. I planted them immediately and feel very confident they'll be all I'm hoping for in the spring.
