Epimedium 'rubrum' (Barrenwort) are superb shade-garden plants, excellent for edging or groundcover, and deserving much wider use in our gardens. This is definitely not something your neighbors have! Plants form a bushy mound of dark green leaves, bearing sprays of cherry-red flowers in mid to late spring. Although they will take a couple of years to reach a mature size, plants are long-lived and very sturdy. Old leaves should be pruned to the ground in late winter to show the flowers to best effect. Drought tolerant once established. Plants may be divided in early spring or late summer. Beautiful bronze foliage color in winter. 1 gal
