Epimedium

A lovely genus, (part of the Berberis family) from Europe and Asia, they are related to other woodland perennials, such as Vancouveria, Podophyllum, Jeffersonia and Diphylleia.

Epimediums from Europe are often some of the most tolerant of dry shade, this includes, Epimedium alpinum, rubrum, pinnatum & pubigerum but also the hybrids involving these, such as Epimedium x versicolor and x youngianum.

Japanese species of Epimedium, such as grandiflorum, are easy to grow but maybe not for the driest spots. The majority of species come from China with a huge range of forms and species, many of which make a great choice for the north side of a wall or a bed that receives some irrigation in eastern UK, and typical shady garden borders in the western parts of the country, where rainfall is generally higher.

Makes a fantastic dense ground cover even in dry shade. We have it growing at the base of a hornbeam hedge in a very thin soil and it is very happy.

A blue-chip and striking Spring woodlander, comparatively large blue flowers in masses in Spring and possibly the odd one in Autumn too. Slowing spreading to form a mat of foliage. Evergreen and quite charming. Likes woodsy conditions and combines beautifully with spring bulbs and ferns. I have seen it used as a very stylish underplant in a formal courtyard garden too.

An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots. Wonderful for natural or semi wild planting schemes.
