I like pale-flowered E. colchicum very much. I went many kilometers in epimedium forests but it always was standard yellow. I know only one place where variations appear. Also was found a plant with variegated flowers. It could be disease.

Very floriferous hybrid! I have some seedlings from free pollination but they haven't flowered yet.

Wonderful plants and spectacular photos, all! (Now where did I put that order form?  ;D)

I hope you don't mind an interruption in the form of a question?
Is anyone familiar with Epimedium pallidum?  Is it a valid species name?  I see it offered by some suppliers, yet it's very hard to find out anything about it.  I ordered a plant a couple of years ago under this name from a Canadian supplier, however it was later identified as E. x versicolor 'Sulphureum' (by Karen Perkins Probst... I was bold enough to send an e-mail and photos to request an ID).  So, I'm still very curious about "Epimedium pallidum"!

Lori - E. pallidum is not listed in our Plantfinder.  However, it may just be that no British nursery has discovered it yet!

Epimedium pallidum is not listed in Stearn's book too. Could you show photos here?

It is difficult to get plants in my country but nothing is impossible.  :D

Olga ,

you must have very fine connections  ;D ( Druschba )

can you grow all this plant outside in your climate ?
I have always a bit fear and so I grow more or less only the easier ...all other are in pots ( but this is sometimes not so well )

Yes I have a net of friends all over the world.  ;D

I grow all plants outside. No way – it’s impossible to make alpine house. And no need to make it for epimediums. They are mostly hardy even here. Some species and hybrids have grown in Moscow and S.-Petersburg regions since 19th century.

I wonder there are plants difficult in your climate. Europe seems a plant paradise.  :)

Thanks for the comments on "E. pallidum". 
As requested, Olga, here is the plant sent to me as "E. pallidum" but later identifed as E. x versicolor 'Sulphureum'.  (I apologize for these poor photos!)
