Epimedium elongatum Cc012906

Epimediums

Distribution – China, in the borderland of Sikang and Western Sichuan provinces around Kangding .

Description -  This is one of  a very few known deciduous species from China. It grows to around 60cm tall and carries good sized bright yellow flowers.

It is described as have a long wandering rhizome type of rootstock, but as yet our potted specimen has not shown this characteristic. With us it seems a little reluctant to get going, but one lives in hope.
