    Pretty and versatile with distinctive heart-shaped leaves and a spreading habit, epimediums bring lightness and airiness to a shady border. The leaves of this cultivar are semi-evergreen and red-tinted in spring and autumn and in spring tiny flowers the colours of sunset are suspended on wiry stems. The colourful heart-shaped leaves provide spectacular all-year foliage interest for shady areas or under deciduous trees. A lovely groundcover plant.
  • Garden care: In early spring remove dead and damaged leaves before the flowers appear and apply a thick mulch of compost or well-rotted compost around the crown of the plant. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
