The large, bold foliage measures up to seven inches in length. Bold veining gives the leaves a textural quality that gives this epimedium a rugged presence in the garden. The flowers are relatively large dangling spider-like amongst and above the foliage.

Epimediums in general grow well under deciduous trees often tolerating somewhat dry situations. We have also grown Epimediums in the full sun and have found that they increase more quickly than in shade but their leaves will often will turn crisp in the hot summer sun. We have enjoyed them the most in open or dappled shade.
