Darrell Probst, one of the plantsmen that has done so much to promote the use of epimediums in the garden, named this selection of the species. The playful name refers to the broad purple brown margins of the leaves when they are young perhaps reminding us of the eye-holes of masks. The all-white flowers of Epimedium grandiflorum v. higoense 'Bandit' rise on wiry stems. Their whiteness is a pleasing contrast to the dramatic foliage. Because this is deciduous, cut back the old foliage at the end of winter to allow you to see the new spring growth clearly.
