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...still quite rare commercially, so get 'em while they last.

Judge not this plant by the flower only. Although a lovely combo of purple and white, the real and lasting attraction are the dark chocolate leaves. 'Dark Beauty' arose as a chance seedling in the garden of renowned legendary plant collector Harold Epstein of Larchmont NY. It is thought to be a cross between Epimedium 'Yubae' and Epimedium 'Silver Queen', both cultivars of E. grandiflorum, a deciduous species.

Gorgeous chocolate-purple foliage which will turn green by end of spring. The typical large flowers are bi-color purple and white, in excellent contrast to the dark leaves.

A lucky chance seedling in the late Harold Epstein's garden which distinguishes itself by sporting new growth of deep chocolate purple. This color seems further intensified by the contrast of the large pink-cupped flowers with flaring spurs of pale pink to white. Deciduous species from Japan.
