epimediums and columbines...compare and contrast
I have several aquilegia but no epimediums (and maybe I have never seen one 'in action'). So why do I have it in my mind that these two plants are kind of similar? Specifically I am thinking they have somewhat like delicate spring flowers with not special foliage that recedes as summer progresses?
(And of course both do well in quite shady conditions but with epimediums renowned for being able to handle that problematic dry shade.)
I would love to hear from GW members who have experience with both and can tell me what I am missing not having epimediums in my shade garden.
