Notes:
Spidery lavender-violet flowers with very long white spurs. The medium green, deciduous leaves have spiny-toothed, oval leaflets on wiry stems and form an attractive foliage mound. New leaves in spring emerge beige with a red tinge, mature to green and turn red in fall. Epimediums are among the easiest perennials to grow. They thrive in medium to heavy shade, and when established, are highly drought tolerant. They are deer resistant and are seldom bothered by voles or other critters.
