Description:

Mérite de Courson prize-winner

Epimedium 'Amber Queen' was produced by crossing Epimedium 'Caramel' X Epimedium flavum and has all the qualities of its parents. It is quite simply one of the best Epimediums for the garden:

  • tough evergreen foliage with red bronze tints in spring,
  • abundant flowers borne high above the foliage in clusters of large amber orange bells, from April to June and again in the autumn.

Height: 35 cm. Flowering: 45 cm.

Grow in partial shade in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained garden soil.

It goes well with all the star plants for shady beds: Brunnera, Pulmonaria, Primula, Polygonatum, Viola. It's worth trying with Heuchera 'Caramel' or 'Southern Comfort' to echo is soft amber flowers.

Cut back leaves and dried flower stems at the beginning of spring to encourage new growth.
