Spring Time

Spring is a magical time when so many plants emerge from their winter dormancy to produce a show of flowers. None is more exciting than Epimedium x perralchicum ‘Fröhnleiten’ when its thin, wiry flowering stems uncurl from the base of the dormant plant and produce small, deep yellow flowers with prominent anthers. As the flowers begin to fade the fresh new foliage emerges which has bright, coppery red shading between the conspicuous green veins, producing a dazzling effect.
