The plant shown is not fargesii, it is most likely Epimedium stellulatum, which has starry white flowers and small yellow centers. There is another species, E. pubescens that does look similar, but my educated guess is that it's stellulatum (I grow both, from the Epimedium man Darrell Probst). Epimedium fargesii has flowers shaped like shooting stars, with very narrow upswept white sepals; I have uploaded two photos to this plant record showing the floral details.

In the absence of a response from the person who posted the photo, I've moved the photo to the generic Epimedium entry.
