E. alpinum

 

Epimedium alpinum

Epimedium alpinum   (Cc. 920002)

This drought tolerant spreading species from southern Europe sports very small flowers held below and among medium-sized leaflets. Inner-sepals are red behind creamy-yellow petals/spurs. 12" tall. The leaflets flaunt a complementary thin, mascara-like red edge while the plant is in bloom. Spreads 8-12" a year, forming an open groundcover. Semi-evergreen.   $8

Epimedium alpinum 'Shrimp Girl'

E. alpinum  ‘Shrimp Girl’  (Cc. 930006)

The clone ‘Shrimp Girl’ is shorter in height (6-8”) than E. alpinum with shorter rhizomes; spreading only 4-5” a year, but its dense growth habit and thick foliage make it far supe­rior at crowding out weeds. Tiny blooms appear below the leaves and are not usually noticeable unless the plant is elevated on a hillside. A short, neat, ground covering Epimedium with a "cool" name. Semi-evergreen.  $8
