Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum'

Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum'
bicolor barrenwort; bishop's hat
Common name bicolor barrenwort; bishop's hat
Family berberidaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers yellow/cream (spring)
Size 9-12"
Light part-full shade

The most vigorous epimedium in our garden: once it got properly settled (which took a few years), it was keen on expanding its clump of shapely, leathery leaves, allowing occasional divisions. The spikes of pale yellow flowers arrive in the second half of April. Like other epimediums we grow, its leaves turn red in cooler weather.

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