Epimedium is perhaps the best dry shade plant for the landscape. It bulks up nicely under a tree. There is even a choice in leaf and flower colours. 'Lilafee' has spurred lavender violet flowers on racemes resembling tiny orchids standing above the foliage that turns red-bronze in fall. Compact but vigorous.
Bloom time April-May
Hardiness Zone 4
