Epimedium 'The Giant' CC012063
Probst discovered this extraordinary Epimedium in 2001 in Sichuan
It is the largest known Epimedium, whose flower stalks can be up to 2m long!
However, they are not standing upright, so that the plant can still reach a stately height of about 120 cm.
The long narrow petals are light yellow and brown towards the center of the flowers, the sepals are short and pale.
About 10 years ago this plant cost $ 500!
Now you usually do not pay more than € 20 for it in Europe.
If you find them in the trade ...

Epimedium 'Totnes Turbo'
very interesting hybrid from England, from the nursery of Sarah and
Julian Sutton in Totnes.
Cross of E. latisepaluma nd E. pinnatum ssp. colchicum.
The breeding goal was a kind of "Turbo Sulphureum".
And there actually seems to be something like an improvement on the well-known and proven Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum'
The two-colored flowers are standing higher above the foliage due to longer flower stems and are also stronger colored.
Flowers: yellow and pale yellow.
small species from Japan.
Native to Shikoku.
Similar to E. diphyllum and E. grandiflorum.
Hardly in the trade.
Height up to 30 cm.
