An evergreen perennial and garden hybrid of E. perralderianum and E. pinnatum subsp. colchicum.

Has ovate, pale to deep green leaves with bronze markings when young. Bears bright yellow flowers with red/brownish small spurs.

Flowers in Spring.

Likes a moist but well drained soil in dappled shade and makes an excellent woodland plant.
