E. trifoliatobinatum

 

Epimedium trifoliatobinatum

Epimedium trifoliatobinatum    (Cc. 950046)

Found in only a few areas on Shikoku, Japan, it is treated as a valid species by Prof. W. T. Stearn. However, Darrell Probst thinks that it looks very much like a stabilized, true-breeding form of E. x youngianum, as the area to which it is endemic is within a region where E. grandiflorum and E. diphyllum  naturally overlap. This clone is only 5” tall in bloom with a second growth flush to 9” tall. Leaflets are very small, less than 1” long, and flecked, shaded in dark red in spring. Medium-sized white flowers have spurs like E. grandiflorum but are smaller and in proportion to the overall diminutive habit of this clone.   $10
