This deer-resistant selection of the deciduous Japanese Epimedium grandiflorum arose in the garden of the late Harold Epstein...a probable rendezvous between Epimedium 'Yubae' and Epimedium 'Silver Queen'. I understand Harold actually encouraged this in his garden as long as he got to watch. The green foliage, which emerges chocolate/purple, is topped with large purple-and-white bicolor flowers in spring. For us, Epimedium 'Dark Beauty' is lightly fragrant with a citrus-like aroma in the afternoon.
