Here is another very interesting Epimedium.
Epimedium x warleyense 'Orangekönigin' is a cross between Epimedium alpinum x Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum, produced by the famous English horticulturist Ellen Willmott (1858-1934). (*)
Discovered in Great Britain in her garden in 1909, it provides a wide variety of colours throughout the season.
Its fresh green spring leaves are edged in red, which turn coral and then bronze in the autumn. Surprising, No ?
Epimedium x warleyense 'Orangekönigin' forms a dense clump 30 cm in height and is suitable as ground cover for partial shade borders. It will resist competition from roots of other plants.
Planting distance: 50 cm.
Grow in light shade in ordinary soil, which can be dry, but away from drying winds that can damage the foliage. Very hardy.
Maintenance: it is advisable to cut it right back at the beginning of the year (before flowering and the appearance of new growth.
(*) Another variety produced by Ellen Willmott: the adorable, unforgettable, incomparable Potentilla nepalensis 'Miss Willmott' !
