Quick Overview:

‘Spine Tingler’ is aptly named for its dark green leaves that have spiny margins. These leaves take on a slight blush tint. Soft yellow flowers bloom on compact plants in mid to late spring. Unlike other Epimedium that send flowers first, followed by foliage, ‘Spine Tingler’ sends flowers and foliage up at the same time.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers loose, organically rich loams with even moisture in part shade. Tolerates drought once established. Evergreen in mild winter climates. Cut back any remaining old foliage in late winter.
