It is an odd one. Only cups, almost no spurs. I love my plant, because of it's a curiosity.

Please readers, comment on it.

One of Martin Rix's findlings....it's a very beautiful form, but I'm biased since I like all E. davidii!

Today 2 members of the x omeiense family.

1. Epimedium x omeiense 'Stormcloud'. Mysterious coloured flowers like a stormcloud indeed.
2. Epimedium x omeiense 'Myriad Years'. Long stems, hanging down.
3. The same plant. That's me, lifting up the long stem, so you can look at the flowers.

E. davidii EMR of my Favs too Gerrit; your plant looks like it is growing more robust than mine.  I also like it because it keeps sending up sprays of flowers, almost all of which I steal to dab pollen on other eppies ;)

Your Epimedium x omeiense 'Myriad Years' brings myriad tears to my eyes, what a beauty it is, don't think it is available here in the USA, will have to look :o

I enjoyed your seedling very much. It is a cute thing.,whatever it is. Wonderful two-tone colour. Would you be so kind and try to separate the plant in the fall and send me a part of it. Of course I'll pay the shipping costs.

I agree Gerrit... Ernie that's a very bright color seedling, very nice, it's such fun finding your own seedlings.  After spending lots of money over the past 10 years buying very expensive epimediums building up a collection of about 200 species and hybrids, I can now rejoice in filling my garden with numerous spontaneous or manually created hybrids, many of which are equally bright and enjoyable, some even better and certainly unique, and at 0$ cost ;D

I like to show 2 epi's looking a bit the same, the flowers anyway.

1 and 2. Epimedium 'Pink Elf', leptorrhizum x pubescens, Robin White.
3 . Epimedium 'Domino'.

Thanks Gerrit and Mark! I like the seedling too. Haven't you recognize the five petals??? Thats what enjoys me the most.
Gerrit i don't want to promise , but i keep you in mind for a division of the clone. Your 'Domino' is awesome, mine doesn't flower yet:-( But i think flowers will open next week. My 'Amber Queen' is even smaller and waits for growing.
I am totaly addicted to Epimedium today because my E.latisepalum flowers now. It is a real beauty. I will take a picture!

Yes, funny. Only a singel flower does this? A disfigurement like my davidii.

It is just the one flower.But i pollinated it, in the hope of something beautiful

You said it looks like the 'Pink Elf' or 'Domino', i don't think so.
The habitus looks much more like a E.grandiflorum-hybrid. I have an eye on that cultivar:-)
