Quick Overview:

Looking for a new kind of plant to shake up your shade gardens? This spring flowering perennial will certainly add new texture and color elements to your landscape. ‘Pink Champagne’ produces flowers with white spurs and raspberry centers. Compared to ‘Domino’, ‘Pink Champagne’ has more dramatic pink tones. The delicate-looking flowers have an airy feel, making it the perfect contrast to other shade items like Hosta. Its evergreen leaves are mottled green with dark burgundy. This is a very vigorous variety.  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.

Description

Easily grown in average, acidic, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers loose, organically rich loams with consistent moisture in part shade (sun-dappled or morning sun). Foliage will usually burn in full afternoon sun. Tolerates full shade. Also tolerates drought and dry shade (rhizomes hold moisture) once established. Intolerant of alkaline soils. Clumps spread somewhat slowly but will form attractive colonies over time. E. grandiflorum is deciduous in USDA Zones 5-6. Although sometimes semi-evergreen south of Zone 6, foliage still tends to disappear on its own by spring. Any foliage that does survive winter should be cut back in late winter prior to emergence of new growth. Propagate by division in early spring or fall.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
