Epimedium grandiflorum 'Saxton's Purple'
Large unusual flowers on this cool barrenwort from Joe Pye Weed’s Garden. It has red-tinged foliage and big reddish purple flowers that resemble white-footed spiders. Sounds like a great party favor to us! Reddish-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.
