I am hoping to post a couple of Epimediums on the bench at Stockton yesterday.  I say hope because this will be the first time from this new laptop and it still surprises me on a regular basis by not doing what I expect.  The I have a query for all you E. buffs.  Pictures of an Ep. given to me by my Japanese friend Kimihiko who said it was just a garden variety from Japan.  I've looked through my Stearn and I still can't name it your help is needed.

That one sure looks good, Shelagh.  Did you ask Edrom about it?

Hi Shelagh,

Looks a bit like E. g. 'Princess Susan'.  A 1999 introduction by Darrell Probst and named after Harold Epstein's daughter.


Looks a really nice plant.

Lovely pics and healthy plants!

Epimediums are my passion for last 3 years.  :)

E. x warleyense is red, E. x warleyense “Orange Konigin” is orange.





Traveling to Caucasus I found color variations of E. colchicum. Think it is a good material for hybridizing hardy Epimediums.

Renate
Not all Epimedium species are evergreen. It is normal for E. x youngianum to lose it's leaves.

I grow several Epimedium species. I' ve sown lots of seed which resulted in a large number of hybrids.
It is often difficult to find out who the pollen parent is. But in this example it was easy because the parents grew next to each other.
And the hybrid has features from both parents.

E. platypetalum x brevicornu (pollen).

Wow, that E. platypetalum is a joy to behold!   Also love the E. xwarleyense too.  Mine is not red like that one, so I guess I too have the Orange form.  Must take a photo and post.

Olga,

Some beautiful species in there, and the colour forms are just great.  I love Epimediums, but so many here I've never seen before.  :o
Cheers.
