Epimedium x warleyense 'Orangekonigin'
Epimedium x warleyense ‘Orangekönigin’ (Cc. 960140)
A shade or two paler orange than E. x warleyense in bloom, and a top-notch evergreen groundcover, this cultivar was introduced by Ernst Pagels of Germany. The inner-sepals are a soft shade of tangerine traversed by darker orange veins. Shorter rhizomes spread to form denser clumps than the straight species, more effectively crowding out weeds. $12
