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. E. pinnatum is not often seen in cultivation. It is native to northern Iran and was introduced to Britain in 1849. It bears canary-yellow flowers, in late spring, that have tiny purple spurs. The leaves are heart-shaped with spiny edges.
