Let's continue that winter walk in Mohican's Hog Hollow-
Hepatica, Heptica noblis
Durable leaves, with attractive mottling, stand up to winter's weather and eventually take on a lovely shade of purple. These used to be separated into sharp-lobed and rounded-lobed plants, but have been "lumped" in recent years. No matter what you call them, the blooms of this harbinger of spring is always a favored ephemeral. But even rarer- leaves that hold up so beautifully against the frost.
"Ice Doodles" called by some, I wondered if there is a more scientific term?
