Epimedium  sempervirens   'Candy Hearts'

E.sempervirens.Creamsickle2_3x2.jpgThis great new cultivar is hardly available in Europe so far.

Grandiose colored foliage in spring.

Flowers pale pink. (Actually the flowers on my plants are pretty white, maybe I got 'Cherry Hearts' instead? We will see..)

Height 25 cm.

Semi-evergreen.

By the way, the leaves look similar to those of E. 'Akakage', which spreads much faster.

This photo shows very young plants of E. sempervirens 'Candy Hearts' (on the left) and E. 'Akakage' (on the right).

Epimedium  simplicifolium  CC 0301207

E.simplicifolium_a_3x2.jpg E.simplicifolium_3x2.jpgAnother rare and beautiful species from Guizhou Province, China.

It has, as the name implies, simple (undevided) leaves (unlike most Epimediums whose leaves are composed of 3, 5 or 9 leaflets).
The leaves grow up to 10 cm wide and 20 cm long.

The large flowers are similar to those of

Growing slowly.

Evergreen.

Height 50 cm.

This species is now treated as a synonym of E. acuminatum.

Epimedium simplicifolium T.S. Ying was described by Ying (1975), only separating it from E. acuminatum in having unifoliolate, sericeous leaves. Upon extensive specimen examination, however, Zhang et al. (2011) found that the diagnostic characters of E. simplicifolium were within the range of morphological variations of E. acuminatum and placed E. simplicifolium into synonymy.

Epimedium  sutchuenense  CC 990394

E.sutchuenense6_3x2.jpg E.sutchuenense2_3x2.jpg Epimedium species from China, Sichuan Province.

The species name sutchuenense has its origin in the French "Sutchuen" (Sichuan) and the ending "ense", which indicates the origin (as in E. x omeiense, E. wushanense, etc.).

First collected by Paul Guillaume Farges in 1893.
Introduced into horticulture by Darrell Probst.

The long, thin rhizomes of this species are spreading quickly, making this plant a very good low growing groundcover.

Beautiful large flowers, but unfortunately not produced in large numbers.

Evergreen foliage spotted red in autumn and winter. (View image)
