Epimediums have been popular in Japan for many years but are now beginning to increase in popularity with UK gardeners. They are generally hardy and enjoy a spot in dappled shade with moist, well-drained soil and regular mulching with garden compost or leaf mould. This species does best in acid soil. For the best foliage, cut back old leaves in spring before new foliage appears. 'Rose Queen' has been given the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit. It forms clumps of heart-shaped, pale green leaves, which are bronze-purple when young. In mid- to late spring, it produces purple and white flowers.
