Flower spikes above the foliage with pale lemon flowers. Very rarely available, and difficult to cultivate for sale, given its preference to run free (but not invasively). [...]
Epimedium x-rubrum. Spreading evergreen perennial. Red and lemon flowers over fresh red-hued leaves in early spring. Plant in light shade, away from summer drought and winter waterlogging, but water in well in its first year. (photograph courtesy of Danielle Monbaliu)
