Epimedium x rubrum

Red Barrenwort

Delicate groundcover with heart-shaped leaves, yellow and red flowers. Slow growing plant; prefers some sun and moist soil containing large amounts of organic matter. Good choice for shady gardens because of its shade tolerance and its ability to hold its own against competing trees and shrubs.
