Corydalis flexuosa 'Purple Leaf'


Corydalis flexuosa 'Purple Leaf' (Corydalis flexuosa (Corydalis))

I admit to buying this plant yesterday for my shady bed. I do have another one similar, which is just appearing now.

The times we have bought this plant only to lose it, as it dies down in the summer, I forget about it and that is how it happens....it is such a pretty plant too.

My problem too, Daisy - it even seeded itself, then I lost the lot!

Annoying isn't isnt it?

6 Mar, 2010

 

Yes, it is is!

Beautiful Spritz, I nearly~~ bought a red one yesterday.

Why didn't you, Pam?

I try hard not to disturb the other purply - blue one I have - 'Pere David', but I agree - it's hard,

Ah, clearly the lovely west somerset climate is at work here! mine are nowhere near flowering! Love them! Because it is so much cooler here, they take a lot longer to disappear so not so difficult to keep. I grow them right at the front of the border as well, so I know to be careful around there.

I hate seeing little white seed markers all over the garden, so I might try something else to mark the places of summer dormant plants & bulbs etc.

Some people paint the names on pebbles and put the pebbles in the beds upside down so they just look natural.

Interesting, Wagger. The only problem there is Henry - he loves stones, and pinches them - then he runs off with them....all the plant names would get muddled up! lol.

You'll have to stick to a plan then, LOL.

7 Mar, 2010

 

Hmm... I'll have to have a think....

I like the stone idea, that's a great idea....if you don't have a daft dog!

8 Mar, 2010

 

Think I'd rather have the daft dog and mislay a few plants, LOL.

8 Mar, 2010

 

He is a daft dog - but he's got a daft owner, too! LOL.

8 Mar, 2010

 

LOL

You`ve given me an idea for my own shady border Spritz, it looks really pretty. :o)

8 Mar, 2010

 

Glad you like it!

8 Mar, 2010

 

mmm I wonder where you've been shopping, I got this last week :D

9 Mar, 2010

 

I wonder............good there, isn't it! :-)))

9 Mar, 2010

 

No, no! I meant MY dog is daft! lol! Your dog is beautiful!

9 Mar, 2010

 

He's still daft, Karen! LOL. Not all the time, though. ;-)))

I've taught him to bring me his brush since yesterday - I was well chuffed! :-))))

9 Mar, 2010

 

You'll be entering competitions with Conker and Terratoonie soon!

9 Mar, 2010

 

No - I don't think so, Wagger. I just think sometimes that we're not challenging him enough - when you think what a lot of Labs are trained to do, fetching his brush is a minor thing, really.

:))) it most certainly is, I need a revisit soon, but it's over 100mile round trip :(

10 Mar, 2010

 

Like me from here, then. Still worth it, though....I'm taking Louise with me when the spring comes!

10 Mar, 2010

 

I'll be taking mum over too, .....enjoy :)

11 Mar, 2010

 

I reckon she'll love it, don't you?

11 Mar, 2010

 

:) most definately, especially the greenhouses, what a choice wow!

12 Mar, 2010

 

It's all a 'wow' place to me!

12 Mar, 2010

 

very true, it was easy to spend all my money that's for sure LOL

13 Mar, 2010

 

Best in the South-west! LOL.
