Epimedium wushanense is one of the rarest species we've ever offered. This is the real Epimedium wushanense, not the other misidentified new species that is offered as Epimedium 'Carmel'. From a very small population in the Wushan Mountains in eastern Sichuan's Three Gorges area comes this fabulous clumper, previously introduced only in small quantities by epimedium guru, Darrell Probst, in 2004. The 10" long x 3" wide, dark green, spiny leaves, often flushed in spring with pink or bronze, are the background for the 2' long, densely packed, arching flower spikes holding up to 100 flowers each. Each 1.5" wide flower has a white back and contrasting yellow cup.
