Epimedium x rubrum
Epimedium × rubrum is a deciduous perennial which grown to about 30 cm tall, also known as Bishop’s Hat. In the springtime the young leaves emerge and are slightly tinged with red colouring. As time passes, they turn a beautiful, deep red.
The flowers appear in spring, at the same time as the young leaves. Each flower is about 2 cm across, with red sepals and yellow petals. In early spring, before the new flowering stems appear, you want to mulch them with well-rotted organic matter around the crown. For pruning, you need to cut them back just as the new flowers start to appear in spring and then in late autumn you should trim off the old foliage. The flowers do not need deadheading. These plants will be happiest in humus-rich, fertile soil that is be free draining. You should water the new plants during any dry spells in their first season to help them settle in. Plant them in partial or dappled shade.
These plants are safe to have around pets and babies.
