Places to see Epimediums
The Garden House at Buckland Manachorum,
Here they have quite a selection of Epimediums, and the majoritythey are growing in very little shade. This must be possible due to the higher rainfall received in Devon.
They have recently created a sizeable area of shade loving plants including many Epimediums.
RHS Garden Wisley.
Here there are to be found large drifts of the older, groundcover varieties along with some newer species and varieties growing in woodland and shadier areas of the rock garden.
Ghent University Botanic Garden,
Plantehtuin Universiteit Gent,
K.L. Ledeganckstraat 35,
Sadly we haven’t as yet visited, but judging by the comprehensive accession list and photographs we have seen, this is the place to see Epimedium species in Europe.
hold the French National Collection of Epimediums at Maine et Loire (department 49). The Nursery is run by John and Carol Worrall, who immigrated to France in 1997. They moved themselves, their belongings and thousands of plants from their first nursery enterprise in Dorset, UK, to France. There they have a large informal garden adjacent to the nursery. They are situated north of Saumur, in between Angers and Tours, and are open to view the Epimediums during April and May at any time, but please contact via e-mail first. They have selected some promising Epimedium seedlings of their own raising, some of which we have been given as part of swaps, and are trialing here. Sadly we haven’t as yet visited.
