Epimedium grandiflorum 'Akebono'
In all these Epimediums the leaves are held on slender, stiff stems, at about the same level as the flowers, which in a few species can be hidden from view. A shearing in late February or early March clears the way for enjoyment of the fresh unfurling leaves and the beautiful small flowers. They look delicate, but they are tough. Vancouveria is a closely related genus.
Epimedium grandiflorum 'Akebono' is a low growing cultivar, with lovely white flowers, flused pink. It's emerging foliage is reddish, before turning to mid-green. Originally from Japan.
