The corydalis are reaching there peak and thought you may like to see what they are like when establised for a number of years ,together with a few odds and ends.


Mostly one or two flower stems = one corm


all quite deep down.


Think this one is C. Integra starting to make a small group


Close relative Dicentra Cucularia this is starting to flower inside,another clump outside is only just showing

Always a pleasure no matter what the weather throws at it


Spotted this self sown seedling love the colour

They are lovely Brian. I am kicking myself now as I had a chance to buy one of those pink ones today and decided not to in the end. Silly me.

Wow, they look very happy! I love their leaves. As well as their flowers

Mine is in flower now, despite the snow!

Please be aware that there are different types,the ones i have shown here are all corms and spend nine months of the year below ground without any leaves or flowers to see.
A lot of the blue ones especially Corydalis Flexuosa grow from a fleshy growth just below the surface this can stay green all year but will go into dormancy if it becomes to hot.While the likes of Corydalis Wilsonii the one I have shown with yellow flowers has a tap root and is in growth most of the year,according to my book on them there are around 750 recorded species of Corydalis and grow in many different situations,some near impossible for us to replicate.
Now i am not sure you wanted to know that but i wrote it anyway.lol
