Do epimedium set much in the way of seed. I ask because I have just received the SRGC seed list for 2012 (4,500 varieties) and it does not include any epimedium. This seems slightly surprising as the club has many growers of epimedium including myself. I am an enthusiastic doner of seeds but have never collected any off our epimedium.
</p> thank you for your replies ppl . i contacted david at clover hill , but he wont have them till next year . @ seaburngirl , thanx i will try those you mentioned . i cant see why they cant be sent here as it is available here , sometimes lol . thanx again 🙂
It may be worth sending an email to Clover Hill Plants
and asking if they sell seeds. Clover Hill are the main growers and sellers of Epimedium in Australia.
The clover Hill web site indicates that they import epimediums from China, so they will not be on a restricted list.

According to the National Institutes of Health, horny goat weed is considered safe when taken in appropriate doses. When used in high doses, it can be toxic to the kidneys and liver.
Studies into the benefits of horny goat weed have been fairly limited. Those published are primarily in vitro studies (conducted in test tubes) or animal studies (which are only suggestive of what might happen in humans). Among the two conditions most studied in this regard are erectile dysfunction and bone disorders.
Always check the label of any horny goat weed product you purchase. While Epimedium saggitatum and Epimedium grandiflorum are commonly used in Chinese medicine, the varietal Epimedium koreanum may cause muscles spasm or the loss of muscle coordination for some people.
Horny goat weed contains a substance called icariin, which blocks a protein associated with erectile dysfunction known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). Under normal circumstances, the body naturally suppresses PDE5 levels. In many men with erectile dysfunction, this doesn’t happen.
