Product information "Epimedium x rubrum"

Barrenworts are among the most valuable ground cover perennials that can be used for naturalising under trees. Epimedium x rubrum forms dense carpets of foliage via its flat, carpet-like and densely branched habit; the plant propagates itself by short runners. The bud is a spectacular bronze colour with a reddish tinge. Starting in April, bright, large, two-coloured flowers with red sepals and white petals appear in loose clusters above the shiny green, slightly toothed leaves that have a hint of bronze. Barrenworts prefer semi-shaded to shady locations with fresh, humus-rich soils that do not dry out. This perennial can be ideally used in large-scale area plantings in front of and under trees. The foliage in autumn is red and remains on the plant when the winters are not too severe. Good partners for barrenworts are arum lilies, Bergenia, forget-me-nots, variegated sedges, sweet woodruff, blue-leaved and white-variegated hostas, great woodrush, angular Solomon's seal and others.
