Description

Height x Spread: 20cm x 35cm

In spring lilac blue, two-lipped tubular flowers stand in clusters above the fern-like, purple foliage. This perennial has a mat-forming growth habit, it is summer deciduous, which means its top growth dies away after flowering - don't forget where you planted it and accidentally dig it up.

Woodland conditions are ideal for Corydalis, it flourishes in humus-rich , moisture-retentive yet free-draining soils in dappled shade. This plant is perfect for planting beneath shrubs and trees and it combines well with ferns or hostas.
