This is pretty, Amy.
New to me, too.
Does it remain evergreen in the winter ?

No it,s not evergreen TT it dies down , you need to mark the spot so that you know where it,s coming next year .. it,s about 1ft high and is a mass of these pretty small flowers , the leaves are attractive as well :o)

Louise got mine from my local favourite nursery that specialises in rare and unusual plants, has the most amazing gardens that you can look round free, know one of mines called 'epimedium versicolour sulphureum', yellow flowers, but can't remember other two offhand, don't know if they do mail order but do have online catalogue at www.hall-farm.co.uk :-)
