Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Also known as Red Barrenwort, Epimedium ‘Rubrum’ is a very hardy perennial that appears in spring with red tinted leaves that soon form a dense clump. As the leaves mature they slowly turn to a deep red colour for autum interest too. In late spring, delicate crimson red flowers appear, each with inset creamy-white spurs, which give this wonderful groundcover plant even more presence in your garden! Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
