An aptly named flower with jester like yellow spurs topped with strong pink sepals. The flowers open freely on narrow, branching stems high above the foliage in spring.
The new spring leaves have a handsome red to bronze blush, then mature to mid green in summer. An enduring choice for dry shade, it copes well without too much coddling.
Epimediums have a lot to offer, and the prosper in the most inhospitable of conditions, dry shade. They are clump forming, rhizomatous perennials native to woodland areas. They grow best in humus rich, well drained soils. Plant in a part shade to filtered light position.

Epimediums are good for planting beneath trees or shrubs such as Hydrangeas, in shaded borders, as shady ground covers or, in well cared for pots.

Fertilise and mulch Epimediums in winter, they love the soil to be rich in composting leaves so don't hold back with dumping them on when they fall in autumn. They spread by underground rhizomes, at a moderate rate, it is no brute. Divide your Epimedium clumps every 3-5 years and don’t forget to protect new foliage from the threat of slugs and snails.

Cut back your Epimedium foliage late winter or spring, to allow the new leaves and flowers to shine, just as you would a Hellebore/Winter Rose.

Epimediums are also known as Bishop’s Hats and Horny Goat Weed.
