EPIMEDIUM - versicolor 'Sulphureum' / Barrenwort


    Epimedium versicolor Sulphureum is a species of perennial herbaceous plant native to China, commonly known as "sulphur barrenwort" or "yellow epimedium". It is a member of the Berberidaceae family and is often used in traditional Chinese medicine for its medicinal properties.

    This plant grows to be around 12-15 inches in height, and spreads out to a width of 18-24 inches. The leaves are evergreen, and have a heart-shaped appearance, with a glossy green color. In spring, the plant produces delicate, small, yellow flowers on short stems, which bloom for several weeks. The flowers are held above the foliage, and have a dainty appearance.

    Epimedium versicolor Sulphureum thrives in partial shade, and can tolerate a range of soil types, from sandy to clay-based. It is a tough and hardy plant, and once established, it is relatively low maintenance. It is ideal for use in rock gardens, woodland gardens, and as a ground cover, as it forms dense clumps over time.

    Overall, Epimedium versicolor Sulphureum is a beautiful and easy-to-grow perennial plant that adds a touch of brightness and cheerfulness to any garden. Its delicate yellow flowers and evergreen foliage make it an excellent choice for gardeners looking to add color and texture to shady areas.
