Bishop's Hat 'Roseum'

Epimedium x youngianum 'Roseum' | Also known as: Snowy barrenwort 'Roseum' | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Epimedium x youngianum is a great plant that copes extremely well with the fickle British weather. Sometimes known as Bishop’s Hat, it blooms with pink and white flowers during the months of spring. These flowers are pretty showy, making it a good choice for early season colour in the garden. It’s leaves are colourful, and change shade throughout the season adding nice garden shades during the autumn. It’s a hardy plant, but likes a partially or fully shaded position to best thrive.
