Epimedium × perralchicum 'Frohnleiten'
- Position: partial shade
- Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: slow-growing
- Flowering period: April to May
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Pretty and versatile with distinctive, heart-shaped leaves, and a spreading habit, epimediums bring lightness and airiness to a shady border. The leaves of this cultivar have delicate markings and are flushed with bronze in spring and autumn. In spring, it produces tiny, bright yellow flowers held on delicate, wiry stems. This evergreen epimedium looks especially good in garden borders or under deciduous trees, since the star-shaped flowers are held high above the foliage. A lovely, year-round, groundcover plant.
- Garden care: In early spring remove dead and damaged leaves before the flowers appear and apply a thick mulch of compost or well-rotted compost around the crown of the plant. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn
