Epimedium 'Amber Queen' is a fantastic fairy wing hybrid (Epimedium 'Caramel' x Epimedium flavum) from the UK's Robin White that blends the best traits epimediums have to offer. The 2' wide deer-resistant clump is composed of semi-evergreen, spiny green leaves that are mottled burgundy as they emerge. The clumps are topped in April and May with 2' long arching spikes adorned with an unreal abundance of bright yellow, spider-like flowers tipped with orange-red. Epimedium 'Amber Queen' is one of the finest epimediums on the market today...you simply won't believe how good this is!
