Larger flowers have near white spurs backed by rich, deep lavender pink inner sepals, a striking deviation from the typical paler blooms of the species. Although its evergreen leaves of dark green are larger than the species, It is one of the lowest growing of groundcover epimedium. Collected by Darrell Probst in 2000 in the Sichuan/Hubei Province border.
Spring-blooming Epimedium are delicate looking plants with a strong constitution, tolerating deep shade and tree root competition. Ideally they enjoy well drained, organic soil with even moisture, but they are also drought resistant when established, making them a great choice for dry shade. Very appealing, refined foliage. A long-lived perennial for the front of a shady bed, as a groundcover, or in woodland gardens. Deer resistant. Epimedium are also known as Barrenwort, Bishop's Hat, or Fairy Wings.
