'Ellen Willmott' Barronwort comes from the English garden of Warley Place and is named after its former owner. A hybrid of E. alpinum and E. pinnatum ssp colchicum, 'Ellen Willmott' produces a multitude of delicate orange and yellow flowers in early spring. They are displayed above heart shaped green leaves which emerge in shades of light purple and turn to green. Epimedium x 'Ellen Willmott' is semi-evergreen and extremely tolerant of dry shade, deer and rabbit, making it an excellent long term groundcover.
