Round-lobed Hepatica, from the Buttercup family, is a small plant with small white, pink or lavender flowers. The leaves are three lobed and are shaped like the liver, hence the common names Liverwort and Liverleaf. The flowers bloom in early spring and are supported by hairy stems.
Hepatica was once used to treat liver diseases based on the doctrine of signatures.
No points for guessing how I came across these beauties!
