More About Epimedium x 'Red Beauty'

  • very rapid grower...quite deer resistant
  • likes dry shade

Spidery lavender-violet flowers with very long white spurs. The medium green, deciduous leaves have spiny-toothed, oval leaflets on wiry stems and form an attractive foliage mound. New leaves in spring emerge beige with a red tinge, mature to green and turn red in fall. Epimediums are among the easiest perennials to grow.
