Rosy Cheeks In Fall

One of the finest traits of epimediums in late fall is when the foliage develops a deep, rosy tint. Epimedium ilicifolium has pale yellow flowers in spring. In late fall/early winter, its deeply toothed leaves develop a cherry red hue, with deep red backs and checkered red dorsal leaves. Very nice.

I love my epimediums, wish I had more. Something's eating the edges of mine, not enough to kill them off, just destroys the perfect heart shapes of the leaves. Yours look great!
It's all that brisk air that causes those rosy cheeks. Beautiful foliage.
Karen... I get a little chewing but not much.

Nancy... I'd trade for some warm breezes.
