Notes About :Epimedium

EPIMEDIUM BARRENWORT, BISHOP'S HAT. Excellent groundcovers or specimen plants, depending on the growth rate. For shade under trees and shrubs. Drought tolerant once established, they perform well in dry shade like almost no other plant. E.grandiflorum needs more moisture in less shady areas. We have more in the collection and we'll add to the list as they become available.

The darkest selection of this evergreen species with medium-sized flowers. The inner petals are long-spurred and strongly arched inward, of a rich purple-violet, set off by pale pink sepals on the outside. For us it has proven to be not only a heavy bloomer, but also a good rebloomer: we seem to have flowers off and on throughout summer and fall among the crop. Clumping.

An extremely floriferous hybrid, rarely in trade, with narrow, evergreen foliage and clumping habit. The flowers are much like E. acuminatum; pale pink sepals with purple petals and simply tons of them. For well drained soil.

An intriguing selection done by Diana Reeck, from a batch of E. grandiflorum seedlings. The leaves are chocolate brown in spring, turning green in the center and leaving a distinctive brown edge, lasting into summer. A perfect backdrop for the milky white, medium-sized flowers. Clumping and deciduous.

An excellent groundcover variety, growing into low, weed suppressing carpets. The small flowers come as a bonus, composed of reddish sepals and yellow spurs, giving it an apricot appearance. Semi-evergreen and fairly well drought tolerant.

A very floriferous selection with medium-sized, soft rose-pink flowers. This doesn't sound impressive but if you think of it, there aren't many in this color group since the aim in hybridizing is usually dark colors. Foliage is light green and winter dormant, after gorgeous red fall color, I might add. Clumping.

[Sometimes listed as youngianum Hybrid] Gorgeous selection with dark pink flowers, fading to white toward the center. Petals and sepals are almost the same length, lending it a double appearance. Drought tolerant once established.

One of the shortest species but also bearing one of the largest flowers in the genus. What a winning combo for owners of small gardens. The flowers are almost 2" across, pale lavender-pink, against maroon mottled foliage. It will turn dark green later and stay through the winter. For well drained soil, clumping.

Receive as such but apparently something different. Still, a rarely encountered evergreen species with deep green foliage turning red in winter. A wonderful contrast to the large, long spurred, pale pinkish-ochre flowers, up to 30 per stem.

Still very rare in cultivation and equally unusual. The bright lemon flowers have such short spurs, they look like bells. The semi-evergreen foliage is shiny and heavily toothed, looking much like that of E. pauciflorum.

An unique and unusual evergreen, clumping species with loads of delicate flowers. The pale lavender sepals are long, very narrow and reflexed, contrasting the shorter dark lavender spurs. Just to add balance, long stamen are protruding downwards from the center.

An eye-catching hybrid (E. davidii x E. leptorrhizum) with extra large (1 1/2 to 2") bi-colored flowers; pink sepals, creamy-yellow cup fading to white into the long spurs. They are held well above the foliage, which is purple tinted in spring during bloom time and green the rest of the year. Slow spreading.

One of my very favorites and I'm surprised this fine hybrid from Darrell Probst doesn't get more attention (You and I can change that!). It has it all. First I noticed the gorgeous fall/winter foliage in rich plum-chocolate. The flowers consist of richly colored inner sepals, of which the long, creamy-yellow spurs protrude. All this comes with a good, above average drought tolerance. Semi-evergreen and clumping.

A total standout among the lot, with large bright pink flowers. While cup and sepals are of a bright cherry-pink, the spurs fade out into white. To add even more contrast, the leaves are purple tinted in spring. Clumping and winter dormant.

A selection made by Deb and Norm of Arbutus Gardens. If there wouldn't be so many other contenders, this would easily be my favorite but it definitely ranks top. Besides being one of the darkest if not the darkest, the dark purple is rather bright as opposed to dull. This makes it more pleasant and colorful. Furthermore, the bloom season is on the late side but still lasts longer than average. But I'm not done yet; for even more contrast and cheer, the foliage is decidedly on the bright side, too. May the 4th be with you!

Some of the biggest flowers in the grandiflorum group, opening within the emerging foliage. Some flowers will be hidden later in the season, but their size will make up for it. Clumping and deciduous.
