Anemone hepatica var. asiatica
Many plants are flowering now; spring has snuck up on me. Among them are these tiny woodland flowers, hepaticas. Hepatica used to be the genus but they have recently been included in the large genus Anemone. These were wild collected in Korea and this is the common form of the species. There are countless horticultural selections a number of which are available in the US. They are delicately spectacular and quite costly.
