I've had this Barrenwort, Epimedium grandiflorum,'Lilafee' for several years. It's a nice spring shade plant so I've been looking for more.
I finally found this one called 'Rose Queen' last year. According to the tag the blooms are supposed to have white 'spurs'. I haven't seen any white but I love them anyway.
Barrenwort only grows to about 12 inches so I'm thinking of moving them to the front shade garden where they will be enjoyed more. The foliage had a burgundy tint so the plant adds some interesting color to the garden.
No, that's not flowering tree blossoms blowing in the breeze!
We are supposed to get about 10 inches of snow by Tuesday a.m. I have no idea what will happen to my gardens but there is no way I could cover them all so I'm just taking a chance. We've never had snow this late in the growing season because our spring came so early. If I loose plants
I'll just have to buy more!
If your spring garden isn't buried under snow, we'd love to see it! Add your name, state and permalink to Mr Linky and a link to this post on your blog.
