Epimedium grandiflorum 'Lilafee' is often sold as 'Lilac Fairy' which is its translation. That name gives the gardener a good image of the appearance of the delicate long-spurred flowers which are held above the foliage. We cut the old foilage back in mid-winter to allow a clear view of the flowers and of the attractive unfurling of the new foliage which is tinged maroon. As they age, the leaves turn green but they do take on lovely coppery tints in the autumn. True to the specific name, the leaves of this selection are fairly large, measuring about 3 inches in length.
