Epimedium grandiflorum 'Spring Wedding'

Description – A medium sized fairly deciduous species with widespread distribution through Japan etc. growing in deciduous woodland. It was introduced to Great Britain in the 1830s. With its wide geographical range through the various Japanese islands etc., a good deal of variation has occurred. Flower colour of the plants found in the wild varies widely: yellow, white, pink, lilac and reddish to purple. Add to this the large number of plants attributed to E grandiflorum that have arisen in cultivation and there may be hundreds of cultivars already named.

 ‘Spring Wedding’ is a deciduous cultivar of E. grandiflorum which has white flowers with the merest hint of mauve pink. We acquired this plant as a kind gift from Danielle Monbaliu who runs The Epimedium Nursery in Belgium. We have not had this long enough to have tried it in the garden.
