This is my favorite epimedium in garden (at the moment of course). As shady real estate is our prime market this is the perfect spring flowerer and what a show stopper it is. It is evergreen but I chop back the old leaves when, after a bit of a rummage, I can see the first flower buds forming. This way they can be shown off to their best advantage and soon produce fresh new leaves.
The ongoing list of “We thought they were dead but have proved not” now includes:
- Salvia involucrata
- Verbena “Seabrook Lavender”
- Brugmansia sanguinea (in greenhouse)
Horrah! Perhaps next time I will let you know the list of “We thought they were dead and really are”.
