Epimedium x perralchicum is a pretty, but robust barrenwort, forming a large clump of glossy, heart-shaped deep green leaves, which are flushed bronze in spring and autumn. Tiny pendent, bright yellow flowers appear on delicate wiry stems, from mid- to late-spring. Epimedium x perralchicum is ideal for growing beneath deciduous trees, and makes excellent ground cover.
