"Often this is the very first flower to break
through the blanket of leaves from the past fall so I've come to regard them as the first sign of
spring in the woods. Sometimes in my impatience, I've scraped away the snow where I know the
hepatica are waiting and have found their tough leaves are already green under the debris. The
flowers have from 6 to 10 sepals that may range from white to blue-violet in color although not on
the same plant. They are also sometimes called Mayflowers in our area of Minnesota because late
April and early May is their time to bloom."
