We acquired our plant of Epimedium wushanense 'Spiny Leaf Form' from Diana Reeck at Collector's Nursery. The scale of this Epimedium is different from most of the forms we grow. It is a big plant, with big glossy leaves that are edged with dramatic spines. It is evergreen, but the spring brings a new set of leaves that are uniformly dark bronze when young but later turn green mottled with bronze and then green. The flower spikes are impressive as well - tall flowering stems laden with pale yellow flowers that are large by Epimedium standards. Because it is not a rapid grower, It has taken time to for us to bulk up our stock to offer this for sale.

Spring.   12-15 in. x 30 in.

Soft Yellow flowers

Shade, Part Shade     Zones 5,6,7,8,9
Because this is an evergreen Epimedium, we usually wait until the new growth has matured before we cut back the leaves of the previous year.
