Epimedium x davidii ‘Jean O’Neill’ Evergreen and reliable cultivar. Raised by Peter Chappell, of Spinners Nursery, Hampshire. Flowers have creamy white sepals with purple spurs. 30cm. Plant in light shade, away from summer drought and winter waterlogging, but water in well in its first year.
A recently discovered species from Darrell Probst, who introduced it in 2010. Unusual in that the large glossy elongated leaves appear singly, rather in their normal triplet form. Flower spikes above the foliage with pale lemon flowers. Very rarely available, and difficult to cultivate for sale, given its preference to run free (but not invasively). [...]
