May Day!

The dainty nodding flowers on this gorgeous Epimedium x versicolor ‘Sulphureum’ mean that spring is here! This low-growing, shade-loving perennial has very lovely evergreen foliage too. Cut all the previous year’s foliage off to ground level in March, so that the flowers can be clearly seen in May. New leaves will follow the flowers. This is a great plant for a dark, difficult spot. Prefers it a bit damp, but can cope with most soil types.
