This dwarf selection of the deciduous Japanese native, Epimedium grandiflorum, comes to us via famed German plantsman, Ernst Pagels. In mid-spring, the new ear-shaped foliage of Epimedium 'Lilafee' emerges with a dramatic bronzy-lavender color. Alongside the foliage, the 10" tall flower spikes emerge, each clothed with spidery violet flowers...extremely cute! I recommend planting this fairy wing near a rock or other garden element for the best visual effect.
