Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum' is one of the older hybrids (Epimedium grandiflorum x Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum), that was selected prior to 1849. Despite its 165+ age, it's still one of the best garden selections. Epimedium 'Sulphureum' spreads much faster (4-6" per year) and is slightly taller than its sister Epimedium 'Neosulphureum'. In the shade garden, it will quickly form a dense mass of foliage even in the worst conditions...a superb choice for a small, impenetrable woodland groundcover. In early spring, the bright red flower stalks emerge topped with light yellow flowers (mid-March in NC). Within a few more days, the green foliage with dramatic red mottling also emerges, creating a nice foil for the scapes of pale yellow flowers.
