EPIMEDIUMS - A WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY GIFT

yet another post about epimediums! but here i make my plea that someone buy their mother one of these wonderful plants for the shade garden. if my hubs is reading, i would like 'bandit' from darrell probst.

this one is crimson queen... the flowers are more than an inch acrosshere is a small white one, with an oak leaf for scaleanother white one, wish i had the name of ita common red epimedium, which, in addition to the dime-sized red flowers, has red edging on the new foliage, which is so pretty en masse

Your dainty wildflowers are very pretty and absolutely unknown to me. It is rewarding to see something unusal (for me) and beautiful. thank you.

Oh, they're well deserving of as many posts as you want to dedicate to them! :) Beautiful, delicate flowers Em. The red edging on the leaves really adds to the beauty of the red one.
I hope your hubs gets the message about 'Bandit' :)
