Epimedium, also known as Fairy Wings, is a charming perennial, to be sure. And Lilafee, a lilac-purple variety of epimedium, couldn't be sweeter! Delicate flowers with a unique spurred form top 8-10" stems amid rich green foliage. The contrast between the two colors is quite striking and gives Lilafee an eye-catching look that is sure to brighten the shady spots in any garden or landscape. Epimedium is a slow grower, but it is tough and very long lived. For a pop of vivid color, add it to sun dappled borders or mixed container gardens. We like it as a flowering ground cover, adding beauty and texture to barren spots.
