This Longspur Barrenwort has large, rich lilac flowers that are very showy. New foliage has bronze color that becomes bright apple green as it matures. Lilac purple flowers appear between April and May.
Epimedium is a choice, semi-evergreen ground cover known for its graceful heart-shaped foliage and Columbine-like flowers (flowers arise before the leaves). It does well in dry conditions and deep shade, and is one of the hardiest perennials.
