That results in crosses between different species and varieties.
This way you get countless seedlings every year.

But every now and then also interesting innovations are created.
Some of these seedlings will certainly be further propagated:
Epimedium AH1701 (E. acuminatum x E. ?)
Epimedium CNS101 (E. grdfl. 'Chris Norton' x E. ?)
Not really what I would expect from a seedling of E. grdfl. 'Chris Norton'...
I like the contrast of stem and flower color.
