Epimedium

Epimedium

A question of two groups: the old European species are happy in a drier soil, but the Chinese species are very much plants for a humus rich, moisture retentive, but not boggy, spot in some shade. Some will prefer a sheltered spot to flush them into flower in Spring. Fine wiry stems carry airy dancing star or spider like flowers. An essential plant for any garden.

A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
