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!Post a Comment
