Here's a shade ground cover you don't really have to think about because it's low maintenance, evergreen and drought tolerant once established. However, this perennial is so colorful, it'll be on your mind through multiple seasons. Its leaves have a rosy look in spring and turn bronzy in fall. Its flowers show off a color you rarely get to see in epimedium—or even in shade gardens in general. The coppery orange blooms appear in early to late spring. If you don't have room for a ground cover, no problem. Orange Queen thrives in containers, rock gardens and edging borders as well. Deer and rabbits don't find it very appetizing, but butterflies love its flowers. Epimedium 'Orange Queen'
