Sharp-Lobed Hepatica

Anemone acutiloba


An early spring wildflower with lavender flowers and 3-lobed, basal leaves. The stalks are very hairy and each bear one flower.


Spotted growing on the ground of a deciduous forest.


The word "hepatica" is derived from the Latin word for "liver", which refers to the supposed resemblance of the leaves to the liver. This resemblance led early herbalists to assume that these plants would be effective in treating liver ailments.
