This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


A lovely woodland and shade container perennial with foliage like an Epimedium. Leaflets colored olive, tan, and copper to red-brown are held on wiry stems; each with a central silver star. Tufts of lavender flowers float over the foliage spring through summer. Darker and more splashed than other T. ichangense on the market. An exciting perennial for some enchanted evening.
