Epimedium grandiflorum 'Orion'

Barrenwort, Bishop's hat


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A fine selection of this deciduous Japanese species which was introduced by We-Du Nursery. Sizable flowers of rich purple are the hallmark of this plant and it more than holds it own against more recent hybrids. All Epimediums can't be painted with the same drought tolerant brush and this one appreciates more water than the real drought tolerant species.
