Epimedium x rubrum
Since tomorrow is Easter, here's a cross shaped flower — Epimedium x rubrum. If you're looking for an interesting and different ground cover, this would be a good choice, although not really evergreen in our climate, it's got beautiful leaves with red highlights and lovely flowers, although they are sometimes hidden by the foliage. There are also white and yellow varieties (see Extras for the white).
