Hepatica nobilis var. japonica f. variegata / Suhamasou スハマソウ

 
Hepatica nobilis var. japonica f. variegata is a perennial herb inhabiting fields and forests in mountainous regions, its slender rhizomes crawling on the ground or rocks. Flower stalks measure 10-15cm, and leaves are radical at the bases of the plants, with long petioles. Blades are shallowly three-lobed; bases heart-shaped, tips not pointed generally, not glossy, and margins are entire. Flowers singly attach on stem tops,1-1.5cm in diameter. Petaloid sepals, 6-10 in number, are linear-lanceolate to long-oblong, and the color is significantly variable from white, light red-purple, red-purple, to blue-purple. Beneath the sepals, there are three on-stem leaves as if they were sepals. Bloom time: March-April.
