My new Plant of the Moment.
The plant that I am visiting each day at the moment is Epimedium Amber Queen. This plant was new last year and I’m so impressed at the way it has taken off in the woodland here and the number of flowers that it is producing.
The flowers seem to just float in the air, their stalks are so fine.
When I planted the Epimedium I completely forgot the Honesty that would be behind it.
Here the flowers almost look as though they are flying through the air like a squadron of bees.
I have other Epimedium in various shades of pink/purple and yellow, but I really like these caramel coloured flowers.
The Honesty flowers make such a nice contrast , a happy accident. I’ll have to make sure that I drop Honesty seeds in this area again!
New fronds of the fern in front link in with the colour of the epimedium, another happy accident.
If the plant is this delightful in it’s first year, then I am certainly looking forward to it increasing in the years to come. I like it so much that I have bought another for the shady part of the rockery, you can’t get a better recommendation than that!
