Epimedium (Barrenwort) 'Spine Tingler'
Size: 1 gallon pot
Light: Part to Full Shade
Unusual foliage and great flowers
'Spine Tingler' is aptly named for its dark green leaves that have spiny margins. These leaves take on a slight blush tint.
Soft yellow flowers bloom on compact plants in mid to late spring. Unlike other Epimedium that send flowers first, followed by foliage, 'Spine Tingler' sends flowers and foliage up at the same time.
Epimedium are one of the few plants capable of surviving in dry shade. Although slow to establish, mature plants will not be missed in the landscape, particularly when in flower.
These plants are appreciated for their durability and critter resistance, but loved for the long sprays of jester hat-like flowers in spring. (Source: Walters Gardens, Inc.)
