Epimedium 'spine tingler'
Hard to do justice on a photo but this is an absolutely stunning plant,
A low-growing, semi-evergreen perennial with gorgeous spiny-edged, lance-shaped leaves. New foliage emerges bronze-red in colour before turning green. Sprays of soft yellow flowers with curving, narrow petals are borne on wiry stems in spring.
