This spreading barrenwort has coppery red flowers with yellow centres and spiny, semi-evergreen leaves. Cultivars from this cross are said to be some of the best epimediums for the garden. Epimediums are among the easiest perennials to grow. They thrive in medium to heavy shade, and when established, are highly drought tolerant. They can be used as effective groundcovers or shade garden accents. They are deer resistant and are seldom bothered by voles or other critters.

We bet you'll take your hats off to this fabulous 'Bishop's Hat', an Ernest Pagels Epimedium alpinum and Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum cross. Its intriguing flowers are defined by soft coppery tangerine-colored petals, greenish anthers and spurs painted with red streaks. The light green spring foliage is spiny toothed and warmed by reddish margins. We place it alongside our shaded steps and benches amid Helleborus 'Ivory Prince', so that we can enjoy the detail and contrasting colors.

Or Orange Queen in translation from the German. A tough and showy evergreen Epimedium whose tangerine flowers are among our favorites. This makes nice dense clumps which are fairly weed suppressive. Always a good thing.

This recent hybrid (Epimedium alpinum x Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum) from master breeder, Ernst Pagels of Germany, is a much slower spreader than straight Epimedium x warleyense. The flowers are also a lighter shade of orange as they top the clumps in late March and early April. From Zone 7 southward, expect the deer-resistant foliage to remain evergreen.
