Epimedium grandiflorum f violaceum




The pale lilac forms in Japan have been described as forma violaceum, originally the name applied to the pale forms only, but it has now extended to include the deeper red purple variants. There are a number of clones in circulation, sometimes under the name 'Violaceum'. This plant is quite close to the original description.

In this example, the sepals are darker than the petals, giving the flower a distinct two tone effect.
