Epimediumm davidii 'Wolong Selection'.....They're like tiny spiders, except pretty
Some days I wish I was about a foot tall; the older I get, the more difficult it gets to get my eyes level with flowers arching 8" above the ground. Epimedium season is largely over, but this is one of the later ones. It's from Western China and was collected by Armand David just about 150 years ago. This plant is growing at the intersection of the GCA Circle and the path that continues around to the Pagoda.
