PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Epimedium x warleyense 'Orange Queen'
Epimedium, Horny Goat Weed, Barrenwort
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Early Spring
Height 12-18in/30-45cm
Light preference Part or full shade
Soil preference Any, free-draining drought-tolerant
Sowing time/depth ,
It's surprising that epimediums are not better known, because they are such attractive and useful plants, providing interest throughout the year to shady and woodland areas. Delicate sprays of soft-orange flowers appear on slender, straight, stems from early Spring, followed by somewhat heart-shaped leaves which quickly develop beautiful bronze markings and are retained throughout the winter.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
A very easy plant to care for - the main thing to remember is that the foliage should be cut back to the base in late winter so that the flowers, which appear in early Spring, before the fresh leaves, are not hidden from view. Drought-tolerant once established.
