Epimedium x youngianum 'Roseum' (Berberidaceae)
Young's Barrenwort, Fairy Wings
This Epimedium is deciduous and clump-forming rather than spreading. Bright green, serrated leaves with red markings emerge in early spring, followed by tiny pale-rose flowers held aloft on thin airy stems. In fall, the foliage turns crimson red. Like other Epimediums, this is a superb plant for dry shade. Cut back old leaves and stems in late winter to make way for new spring growth.
