This species was recently discovered (1998) and the name translates into holly-leafed. As some similar species like E. wushanenese can get fairly large, Epimedium ilicifolium stays compact with foliage reaching about 12", while the bright lemon flower spikes protrude to about 18". Like most spiny evergreen varieties, this plant performs best in spots protected from freezing, drying north winds.
