A lovely new hybrid from Japan which has a similar stature to Epimedium grandiflorum. Relatively small but numerous leaves held on typical wiry stems are present most of the year and only drop fully if the weather is extremely cold. New growth starts in the spring with the flowers rising first to a height of around 25 cms or so. These are relatively large with a bluish calyx followed later by the fresh new growth. Easy and not over vigorous.
