Welcome to Garden Vision Epimediums, a small, rural retail nursery established in 1997 and featuring the best selection of Bishops caps, Barrenworts and Fairy wings for sale in the United States. Epimediums make the perfect addition to your woodland shade garden. Their delicate, fragile beauty belies their tough, long-lasting nature. They are easy to grow, spring-blooming, deer-resistant, shade plants. Their flowers also come in a wide range of shapes and colors. Many also have amazing spring (and sometimes fall) foliage colors. Foliage size and shape varies from heart-shaped to spiny and arrow-shaped. Some leaflets can grow to be as large as your hand, others as small as your thumbnail.

Many gardeners know these plants simply as ground covers for dry shade, but recent hybrids and new species discoveries have added a whole new dimension to this intriguing genus. Most of the Epimediums in our collection represent the collecting and hybridizing efforts of Epimedium expert, Darrell Probst.

You can see here the Epimediums listed in the print catalog, but with even more photos. To place an order, please download an Order Form to send in by mail or by fax.  Browse through the main catalogue, or you can sort by several characteristics including flower color, species, growth habit, drought tolerance, size, etc. Email or call with any questions that you have, but no phone orders, please. Being the chief cook and bottle washer leaves me very little time in the office.

The 2017 printed catalog is available here for download, along with the accompanying photo pages. If you would like a printed copy mailed to you, please email your request to me at karen@epimediums.com.  The 2018 print catalog will be available later this spring. The plants listed on this website and collections have been updated for price and availability for 2018. I will add a few more over the month of January. Thanks for your patience.

I accept orders placed within the United States and ship in June and September thru mid- October. Plants are reserved as the orders are received, so I accept written orders year-round. If you prefer making your selections in person, the nursery is open to the public for sales and viewing mature plants in bloom during select open days in April/May. I also participate in several off-site plant sales and talks  throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states. Click on the link to find a schedule of my Epimedium talks as well.
