Epimedium versicolor ‘Sulphureum’ Care
Try a humus rich soil that has some well rotted manure dug well in. Epimedium sulphureum 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.
