Epimedium grandiflorum Purple Pixie

Epimedium grandiflorum 'Purple Pixie'

Barrenwort

'Purple Pixie' Barrenwort was found by Dr Richard Lighty in his own garden, as a surprising sport of Epimedium grandiflorum 'Alba'.  The delicate flowers are a deep violet purple with extended white spurs, and they hover over the fine green foliage in April.  'Purple Pixie' makes an excellent semi-evergreen clump in shady dry locations, and the refined, heart-shaped leaves emerge in the spring in shades of burgundy and purple.  'Purple Pixie' performed very well in the Chicago Botanic Garden's Epimedium trials.

PRN Preferred:  Showy spring foliage topped by purple flowers, received very high ratings in the Chicago Botanic Garden's trials.
