Found growing wild in north-east Turkey, this handsome species forms clumps of tough, spiny, evergreen foliage. In mid- to late spring, it produces almost saucer-shaped, bright yellow flowers small dark red central petals. It makes a tough plant that is easy to grow. 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. For the best foliage, cut back old leaves in spring before new foliage appears.
