Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum'

Fairy Wings

This versatile Epimedium has lovely primrose yellow flowers in spring that rise just above the heart-shaped foliage, which blushes red when new and matures to light green in summer. It prefers a shady woodland setting but can handle dry shade and makes a good groundcover even under large trees.
