Worrizzit?

Can some kind soul in Blog-land tell SomeBeans and I what this plant is? It was flowering at Ness gardens at the weekend but was unlabelled. It seems to have strawberry-like leaves and has lime green flowers. Thanks in anticipation of your help!

Could it be some kind of hepatica?

I haven't the foggiest, but I want one!

I see from this article that you can get hepaticas with green flowers:

Hi Happy, I am sorry to say I have no idea, but it is very pretty. And that epimedium is going on the wish list. Most of them are so similar, it doesn't seem worth adding them, but this one is a looker!

This is a complete cheat, because I Googled "lime green flowers spring" but it came up trumps and I think it is Hacquetia epipactis.

Thanks Victoria - that does indeed seem to be what it was. It was a real eye catcher. I shall have to practice saying the name!

No idea what it is - but it's lovely and I want one!

Fantastic - a neat plant that's totally new to me! It probably isn't going to be hardy for me, but it's a cute thing, whatever it is.

Yes it is Hacquetia epipactis. I've got some flowering at the moment.
