The spring foliage of this selection has remarkable purple brown flecking and staining which diminishes as the foliage ages. Dainty white and pale lavender flowers dangle in multi-flowered sprays above the attractive leaves.

Epimediums in general grow well under deciduous trees often tolerating somewhat dry situations. We have also grown Epimediums in the full sun and have found that they increase more quickly than in shade but their leaves will often will turn crisp in the hot summer sun. We have enjoyed them the most in open or dappled shade.
