Epimedium x perralchicum 'Frohnleiten'
Hybrid of E. perralderianum and E. pinnatum ssp. colchicum. Leaves are mottled red in spring, with clusters of large yellow flowers held above. According to Plant Delights Nursery, it is evergreen from zone 6 southward. In its first overwintering in our garden, it disappeared completely until new growth surprised us in mid-April. What a leaf! In its second winter, the leaves did not disappear, but calling them "green" would be stretching the truth. The dancing yellow flowers made an appearance though - right at the beginning of May
|By mid-May, many leaves are turning bluish green |
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|E. Manleymem30@talktalk.net||May 06, 2013||when do you cut back the leaves on this epimedium? They are beginning to look a bit tatty now.|
Last year's leaves, which are somewhat evergreen, should come off in early spring, so that you can appreciate the marvellous new growth that should be arriving just about now. Those new leaves should stay attractive all season.
