Epimedium

Ah. ..  its fairyland  in the garden .. tinkerbell time.  I love epimedium.   My sister Amy brought me a piece of one awhile ago, and I fell in love with the genus.  A few years back, my garden club had Karen Probst from Garden Vision Epimediums come to speak.  She brought plants to sell.  Major damage to the checkbook, but oh my they are gorgeous.   I learned that some are spreaders (whoops had to move those) and  some are clumpers.  I have  some of  the names but they have blended together a bit so I’m afraid I’ve lost track of a few.  Some started blooming a few weeks ago, some just popped today.  Welcome to fairyland……
