E. membranaceum is another little-known Chinese species with tremendous garden potential. To us, E. membranaceum superficially resembles a clumping E. rhizomatosum. For us, the clump is topped, starting in early-May (NC) with numerous 22" flower spikes, each with up to two dozen 2" spider-like, bright yellow flowers. The late Professor William Stearn wrote, "Cultivated at Kew, Epimedium membranaceum flowers longer than any other species of the genus."
