Barrenwort Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in an average to moist, well-drained soil in partial shade. Epimedium spread by rhizomes and are slow to establish. Once established, they make a tidy, ground cover for dry, shady locations. Pruning in late winter will encourage fresh leaves and profuse flowers.
