Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum
Elegans Fairy Wings
A personal favorite for its long-lasting, semi-evergreen resilient foliage and sunny springtime flowers. Cheery yellow flower sprays sway gracefully above mounds of dark green leaves mid- to late spring. An excellent, easily managed groundcover that is beautiful when planted en masse under trees, in woodland gardens, and along borders.
Full-part shade. Cut back old leaves in late winter for best floral display in spring. Height 9-16”. Spread 9-16”. Zones 5-8.
