Additional Information About Epimedium rubrum - Red Barrenwort


More About Epimedium rubrum...

This epimedium hybrid (sometimes commonly called Red Barrenwort or Bihop's Hat) is a rhizomatous, clump-forming perennial which typically grows 8-12" tall and is primarily used as a ground cover or edger in shady or woodland areas. Racemes of unique, short-spurred to spurless, red flowers appear above the foliage in spring. Compound, medium green leaves with pointed, spiny-toothed, heart-shaped leaflets (to 3" long) on wiry stems form attractive foliage mounds in the garden. New leaves in spring emerge with a red tinge, mature to green and turn reddish in fall. 

Epimedium is easy to grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. It prefers loose, organically rich loams with even moisture in part shade. Once established it tolerate drought. Epimedium rubrum spreads faster than most other epimediums. In late winter, before new spring growth begins to emerge, cut back any remaining old foliage.

Epimedium is a great small area ground cover or edger along paths in shady areas. It fits in perfectly in woodland garden settings. Also effective in partially shaded areas of rock gardens and grows well under trees.
