Epimedium x versicolor 'Cupreum'

 Epimedium x versicolor 'Cupreum' - fantastic spring foliage   copyright  2002 Mark McDonough

What's 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 color, 
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).
