Epimedium 'Pink Elf'
Hybrid epimedium, a cross between E. leptorrhizum and E. pubescens. It features evergreen foliage, and pink flowers in early spring, starting around the middle of April. From a distance, they looks like a pale pink, but closer observation reveals a fine streaking or splashing of purple-pink on white petals, with a sepia underside to the flowers, giving the impression of odd birds or insects hovering in mid-air.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
