in flower during May, with delicate rosy-
lavender and white flowers. By this time
the fantastic red spring foliage has turned
nearly all green.

Epimedium x versicolor 'Cupreum'
Epimediums (or Eppies as I like to call them) are marvelous
garden plants that combine only the best characteristics. They are
hardy and extremely long-lived, taking neglect and dry shade if they
must, although they certainly do better and prosper under more
favorable conditions with sufficient moisture. The leaves are
terrific in many ways, often richly colored, quaintly shaped, and
always elegantly positioned. The flowers too, are lovely,
in a variety of colors, spurred and winged like bees in flight.
Links to Epimedium plant sources
Darrell Probst's Garden Vision catalog breaks new ground and seems
impossibly fantastic! The range of Epimedium wonders surpasses the
wildest imagination. Click here to view his web page, but better yet,
send an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for a catalog well worth
getting for the information alone, and of course, there's a huge
offering of mouth-watering Epimediums. Both "Epi's" shown on
these pages are available from Darrell's nursery. There are also
choice Iris and other woodland plants for your enticement.
Tony Avent's Plant Delights Nursery is equally mesmerizing, having
not only a great selection of Epimedium, but other garden treasures
unlikely to be found elsewhere. Visiting the website (with on-site
ordering available) is a great temptation... not for the weak willed.
