Epimedium ‘Flame Thrower’ is a 2009 Darrell Probst introduction of an evergreen hybrid fairy wing that forms a 1' tall x 3' wide clump, that's topped for us, starting in early to mid-April with arching cinnamon-colored stalks, terminating in large clusters of rather large flowers that resemble an evergreen Epimedium grandiflorum on steroids. Each flower is composed of bright raspberry outer sepals, long creamy white inner sepals and a creamy white cup. In winter, the foliage takes on a lovely bronze/plum hue.
