Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum' (Berberidaceae)
(eh-pa-MEED-ee-um VER-si-ko-lor)
Yellow Barrenwort, Fairy Wings

Tough-as-nails plants for dry shade; Epimediums spread slowly, are durable and persistant in the garden. Low, evergreen foliage turns burgundy red in winter. Exquisite, pale sulfur-yellow flowers appear to float above fresh leaves in early spring. Enjoy year-round, as this groundcover handles challenging conditions through the seasons.
