Epimedium grandiflorum 'Lilac Fairy' (Lilafee) is one of the larger Epimediums available, prized for its long-spurred, amethyst purple flowers which are held well above the foliage. Since many Epimediums tend to hide their flowers within or below their foliage, this is a key improvement.
This cultivar blooms in mid to late spring, with the flowers appearing shortly after the new foliage emerges. Though the flowers may only last for a few weeks, its lovely foliage will captivate your interest all season long.
The new leaves emerge with a strong bronzy red tinge, turn green for the summer months, and then back to bronzy red in fall.
Epimedium is effortless to grow, requiring just a quick trim of the old foliage in early spring, making it an excellent choice for low maintenance gardens and beginners. This Epimedium is a clump former which spreads somewhat slowly by underground rhizomes. It can be used as a ground cover, for erosion control, in shady rock gardens, as edging, and planted under mature trees. It tolerates dry, rocky, shallow soils, dense shade, and is deer and rabbit resistant.
