Barrenwort: Yellow


Competing well with tree roots and tolerant of dry soil, Epimedium makes an elegant groundcover—especially in the dry shade under trees. Beautiful heart-shaped leaves are burgundy in spring, turning bright green with red edges in summer, and finally dark red in fall. Delicate, nodding, pale yellow flowers rise just above the lush foliage in May. Oh, what a lovely plant!
