Epimedium 'Royal Flush', a 2004 Darrell Probst introduction, is one of our favorite Epimedium x youngianum hybrids. Epimedium 'Royal Flush' emerges with purple-bronze tinted leaves that are adorned with short spikes of light lavender flowers in mid-spring. As the weather warms, the older foliage eventually turns to green, although the color holds longer than other Epimedium x youngianums we've grown. Epimedium 'Royal Flush' has proven to be a very strong grower that remains a 2' wide, tight, semi-evergreen, deer-resistant clump.
