Epimedium grandiflorum ‘Purple Pixie’ features deep violet flowers with white spurs blooming above loose clumps of heart-shaped foliage. Herbaceous perennial. New foliage emerges with a violet blush, changing to olive-green with maroon margins.
These tough plants can grow under trees where many others die off. Barrenwort is effective as a groundcover or tucked into shady gardens. Tolerates dry conditions once established.
