Epimedium wushanense ‘Sandy Claws’
Sandy Claws Fairy Wings
This woodland perennial is perfect to combine with other shade staples like Hostas and ferns. ‘Sandy Claws’ has a similar leaf shape to ‘Spine Tingler’ but forms a larger plant with long, lance-shaped leaves and spiny margins. Newly emerging foliage has dramatic maroon coloring unique to the shade garden. The color mellows to dark green by summer. The cream-colored flowers contrast beautifully with the brilliantly colored foliage. Act now, since this variety is in limited supply and will sell out quickly. From Darrell Probst.
