This is an evergreen Epimedium with bronze tinted heart shaped foliage and small yellow star shaped flowers during spring.
Epimedium x perralchicum ‘Frohnleiten’ is suitable for use as a border plant and is often grown in partial shade beneath deciduous trees.
If you can cut back the foliage completely in winter then the show of flowers rising up in the thin stems in spring will be a real feature in the garden.
If you choose not to the flowers tend to get a little lost beneath the old foliage. You will also be rewarded with wonderful new foliage through summer.
Epimedium x perralchicum ‘Frohnleiten’ Care
Try a humus rich soil that has some well rotted manure dug well in. Epimedium x perralchicum ‘Frohnleiten’ 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.
We tend to apply some slow release fertilizer in spring and again in early summer. A little blood and bone in spring as well.
Remember to cut right back in winter for best flowering and foliage display.
