About this Website

Foto Ausbildung PagelsBefore I started the apprenticeship as a perennial gardener at the nursery of Ernst Pagels about 20 years ago, I didn't know anything about Epimediums.

Since then, a lot of time has passed, many new species have been discovered and in the last ten years I collected many perennials, especially shade perennials and a lot of Epimediums.

E.grdfl.Queen_Esta4_3x2.jpgThe fascination for these lovable plants, which can be tender (flowers) and hard (leaves) at the same time, has grown steadily and will certainly continue for a long time.
I hope, that the interest in the genus Epimedium will finally reach a level, that corresponds with their qualities as garden plants.


This website is intended to fulfill the following purpose:

E.Space_Wagon_3x2.jpgOn one hand, it should offer a small overview of the genus Epimedium for interested "plant people".
The descriptions of the individual species and varieties are deliberately kept short and concise.

On the other hand, this works as a kind of "Epimedium database", at least for myself, and maybe even for others. Although of course it is not complete and it never will be.

In addition, I am pleased to be able to offer you many of the presented Epimediums.
The website thus also has the function of a catalog.

E.gelber_Dauerbl%C3%BCher_3x2.jpgMany varieties (some of which are common standard varieties) do not appear in this list. This is because my interest has always been in the more specific and rarer types and varieties.
Maybe an addition of the "missing varieties" will follow one day.


If you find mistakes, or if you have questions, suggestions or comments, or you just want to order some plants, please do not hesitate to contact me!
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
