General Characteristics & Culture:

Culture & Growth: Epimediums are easy to grow, long-lived shade perennials that thrive in well-drained, moisture retentive soils. Although many grow on limestone in China, they also have grown very well here in the slightly acid soils of north central Massachusetts. They can be planted in partial sun (with adequate moisture) in northern latitudes; but need more shade further south. Too much sun will scorch the leaves, making them look unsightly, but will not kill the plant. They are tough, and once established, many tolerate dry shady garden sites where other plants fail, making them good choices for planting under shallow-rooted trees and in gardens that experience periodic drought.

Garden Vision Epimediums is located in
10 Templeton Rd (on the Common), Phillipston, MA      (across the street from the Library/Town Hall Annex) not a long ways to go for a huge selection in varieties.

Also Save the date for our last Hort Morning:  Tuesday, May 21st with Ellen Ecker Ogden

Tomorrow night, Feb 19

Our “Seeing History” Program will take place Tuesday, February 19, 7pm at the Manchester Community Center. Conviviality is what is needed on a cold winter’s night. Greet some friends, learn some art history and dream of spring. Bring a guest to this free program sponsored in part by the Manchester Cultural Council.


Explore the art of Maria Sibylla Merian, botanical artist of the 17th century, and Rachel Ruysch, international master of floral still life in the 17th and 18th centuries. These distinguished women artists created a legacy and broadened our knowledge of flora and fauna.

The snow-flakes have settled and our program committee has co-ordinated the speaker and the Community Center for Tuesday, February 19, same time and place. Let’s hope Mother Nature cooperates.

I just updated these minutes. Take a look, the board is looking for someone to do a floral arrangement for Boots-in-Bloom and a vice president is still needed; never too late to raise your hand.
