Kidneywort is a herbaceous plant of the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family, native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Anemone hepatica is its current scientific name, synonym to Hepatica triloba, Hepatica nobilis or Hepatica trifolia. It is also commonly referred to as liverwort (because the three-lobed shape of the leaves gives them the appearance of a liver) or pennywort.
Flowers can be blue, purple, pink or white. They are among the earliest to blossom in the mountains at the beginning of the spring, but they also grow in woodlands.
