Epimedium x perralchicum 'Frohnleiten'
Barrenwort - 2 litres
Epimedium x perralchicum 'Frohnleiten' is an evergreen perennial with dainty bright yellow flowers on wiry stems and handsome heart-shaped leaves, tinted coppery-red when young, turning deep green and making excellent groundcover, associating well with hostas, pulmonarias and other shade-loving perennials. Forms a slowly spreading mound 40cm by 60cm (16in x 2ft).
Thrives in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil in light or full shade, sheltered from cold, drying winds. Reasonably drought tolerant once established. A mulch of leaf mould or compost in spring is beneficial.
