Our research reveals that this was named by Seattle area plantsman Jerry Flintoff to honor the late Harold Epstein, who, among a list of accomplishments, was the long-serving president of the American Rock Garden Society and who was an avid collector of Epimediums. This slowly spreading groundcover is excellent for larger areas in need of a showy display. What makes Epimedium 'Harold Epstein' showy is not only the large flowers which appear before the new foliage unfurls. It is also the very large leaves measuring a half-foot-long and about 4-inches wide that really make a statement. In addition, the new leaf-stems are red.
