This Epimedium is late to open. The foliage is light green and the flowers are small with no wings. Does anyone know what this is?

Not sure if you are an epimedium fanatic or not, but the one most commonly on the market would be E. diphyllum 'Roseum'.
Seems to fit exactly.

I agree, it looks like a fit for "Fairy Wings" - E. diphyllum 'Roseum'.

Here's the link to the plant in the ATP database: Young's Barrenwort (Epimedium x youngianum 'Roseum')

I guess it's now considered Epimedium. x youngianum 'Roseum'

I have Epimedium 'Roseum' but Epimedium diphyllum 'Roseum' fit the description perfectly. I moved 4 years ago and got many of my plants mixed up and it's driving me "nuts" to have forgotten the name of so many plants. Old age sucks! Can I say that here? Thank you for the help.♥

LOL, I've said it numerous times and many of us can relate! I'm 66 years old and I used to know both the scientific/botanical name as well as the common name of my plants and nowadays I sometimes stare at a plant, knowing that I know what it is and I draw a blank as to it's name ... it drives me crazy! Green Grin! but many of our wonderful fellow gardeners here on ATP have helped refresh my memory with plant ID ... my problem is if I don't immediately mark the plant ... by tomorrow I've forgotten the identification again. I have lots of folders on my laptop full of photo's of my plants and sometimes I sit for hours scrolling through them trying to find a particular plant by looking at photo's.
