Besides white, I saw various shades of blue-purple and pink, often growing right next to each other, so I don’t think the pH of the soil caused the different colors. They were more likely genetic variations.I am reassured that, once I find a source for it, Hepatica acutiloba will do well here.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
