Epimedium grandiflorum has long spurs and is from Japan. This photo with flat-faced bright yellow Verbascum-like flowers is Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum (from Turkey near Black Sea), or one of the hybrids with that species, or very similar allied species E. perralderianum (from Algeria). Popularly grown are hybrids under the name E. x perralchicum 'Frohnleiten' and 'Wisley', where perralchicum is the cross perralderianum x pinnatum ssp. colchicum. Not able to tell from the photo which cultivar it might be, but the common denominator ID here is E. pinnatum ssp. colchicum.

I could have sworn the tag said Frohnleiten.
