Nine beautiful epimediums to grow

Discover nine beautiful epimediums to grow – perfect for ground cover in a shady spot.

Epimediums (also known as barrenwort or bishop’s hat) have pretty, heart-shaped evergreen leaves and delicate, nodding flowers.

Their spreading habit makes them excellent ground cover plants – grow them under shrubs or trees in a shady spot. The tiny, star-like flowers in spring look great paired with spring bulbs, hellebores, primroses, trilliums and other shade-loving plants.
