One of a range of Japanese cultivars that have become available recently. This is the first flowering here
so I do not yet know how it will perform in the garden. The earliest reference that I can find to the cultivar
comes from Shikoku Gardens in Japan. It reads:
'Suzuka' is a small growing variety with pink spurs and outer petals, pure white inside.
Epimediums are among the easiest perennials to grow. They thrive in medium to heavy shade, and when established, are highly drought tolerant.
They are deer resistant and are seldom bothered by voles or other critters.
