SOLVED: Eranthis - but which?

Helsinki, Finland(Zone 4b)

Now all Eranthis growers.. is this Eranthis hyemalis or tubergenii? OR some other species? The leaves look like tubergenii. Sorry the horrible photo quality - but I think you can see the leaves, don't you? ;)

Rareplants is where I was looking but there all hyemalises had much less and bigger leaves.

Hello Evert - can't make my mind up on this one. What you see beneath the flower is the bracts. On the hyemalis they are more dissected, broader and leaf-like; that does not seem to be the case here. In the x tuberginii the bracts should have a bronzy-green look and cut into narrow lobes.

So, to me, they are x tubergenii without any bronzing to the bracts.

Peter.
