this epimedium flowers well and stays evergreen. the young foliage is bronzy too.
the bamboos don't run, they have been in for 15 yrs and will only have tripled in size in that time. I suspect the roots from the neighbouring trees helps keep them in check. Thing is I've no idea what they are. There was a third but it flowered then died like they all seemed to up and down the country.

Which Epimedium is yours? I take the old evergreen (browned) leaves off my versicolor and rubrum so that the flowers can be seen and then the new foliage comes thro' with the patterning.
