Epimedium hunanense

Distribution  - China, Hunan province.

Description –  A medium sized evergreen species related to E. davidii, fangii, flavum and ilicifolium, all having yellow flowers. The leaves consist of three broad cauline leaflets with very spiny margins.

We have not had a lot of experience with this one, but a plant has survived and flowered in a fairly shaded spot in the garden. Another one is alive in a protected nursery bed..
