Barrenwort or Blue Sailboat if you prefer

Epimedium acuminatum

Naturalized here, but originated in China, naturalized here, not to be confused with the Epimedium grandiflora which is a perennial native of Japan but which has purple flowers with white spurs. Nice name for a flower isn’t it – Blue Sailboat.
