Epimedium rhizomatosum

Originally from southern China Epimedium rhizomatosum is a taller growing evergreen species to 24inches. Clear bright attractive yellow pendulous flowers with long spurs appear on tall flower spikes

New growth rises in spring followed by flowers. Foliage is a nice dark green with a slightly serrated edge.

This is species that is also used in hybridisation.

Epimedium rhizomatosum Care

Try a humus rich soil that has some well rotted manure dug well in.

Epimedium rhizomatosum will do well in poorer soils, but will do a lot better in a good soil. Dappled shade, or morning sun and afternoon shade is best.

Old foliage can be cut back in spring to tidy up the plant. Larger clumps can be divided in fall, or in early spring.
