Epimedium

Epimedium

A question of two groups: the old European species are happy in a drier soil, but the Chinese species are very much plants for a humus rich, moisture retentive, but not boggy, spot in some shade. Some will prefer a sheltered spot to flush them into flower in Spring. Fine wiry stems carry airy dancing star or spider like flowers. An essential plant for any garden.
