x versicolor 'Cupreum'
remarkable about this wonderful "Epi" is the striking spring
foliage, reminiscent of tropical Pepperomia plants with watermelon
leaves. Here the foliage is an intense burnished red-brown
with lively chartreuse veining. The oddly hued coppery blooms add
to the charm of this great woodland plant.
One of many hybrids between grandiflorum x pinnatum ssp. colchicum,
this one is a slow-growing gem (my plant is nearly 20 years old).
