Epimedium latisepalum x ogisui. Spreading evergreen perennial. Large white flowers over fresh bronze coloured leaves in early spring. 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.
