CORYDALIS A huge genus of with over 300 species that most taxonomists place in the Papaveraceae, some are bulbous, some are creeping woodlanders; the flower colors are intense, in virtually every visible wavelength and a few that only the Bumblebees can see. Most are easy to the point of being weedy, (they have explosively dehiscent seed that is intolerant of dry storage) although there are legendary rarities like Corydalis cashmiriana that border on the un-growable. The following offer offers but a glimpse of the wealth they have to offer.

Corydalis ex 'Dufu Temple'

Corydalis ex 'Dufu Temple'

This came from a collection offered in the Scottish rock garden seed exchange. It is hardy here and has wonderful blue flowers in shades ranging from sky blue to purplish blue with sky blue forms predominate. It is very distinct and nothing like C. flexuosa Blue Panda. Our original three plants have multiplied, and multiplied, and multiplied, the most wonderful weed you could possibly have. It blooms from spring continuously until November. Seed explodes from Touch-Me-Not capsules at the slightest touch, making it lots of fun for kids but a bitch to collect; fortunately the ants will pick up the seeds and plant them for you. As far as we know all stock in the U.S. originated with us; recently plants have been offered as a cultivar of linstowiana, we don't know what they grow as linstowiana but Zetterlund sent us seed from Gothenburg. From Heinrich we presume it to be the real thing and it is definitely different from Dufu, so much so that we can hardly believe they belong to the same species. Unlike linstowiana, Dufu is semi-tuberous and very cold hardy and permanent. A plant that is sure to become a classic, and we predict will largely replace C. lutea in the landscape - by brute force if necessary. ____ZONE 4

Corydalis lutea

We haven't offered this in a while, but it hitch hiked back into the garden on a Sinocalycanthus that Langhammer brought us, (be warned it is even more of a weed than Dufu) however it too blooms forever and is great from a landscape point of view. In any event, it is now loose in our Hosta garden and we have been potting up some of the excess, its just too pretty to throw on the compost pile.____ZONE 4

Convallaria montana

Convallaria montana

The American version of Lily Of The Valley, this runs forming tufts a couple feet away from the parent plant but unlike the common version is not a nuisance, indeed in the wild, it is rather rare. Fred said he seldom encounters it while searching for trilliums.

Corydalis bulbosa

At least we think its bulbosa; this is confused with cava, bulbous purple ephemeral.____ZONE 4

Corydalis decepiens

Corydalis decepiens

A bulbous species; Zetterlund considers the name to be conspecific with C. solida ssp incisa, to add to the confusion there is a Dutch variety 'Decepiens', an improved early flowering purplish solida selection of obscure origin, ours are probably this one.____ZONE 4

Corydalis solida

Corydalis solida

The classic early flowering bulbous Corydalis, it spends a great deal of time dormant but is incredibly showy when in flower, the tubers slowly multiplying by splitting in half, flowers can be anything from purple to red; these are un-flowered seedlings.____ZONE 4

Corydalis solida 'Dieter Schacht'

Corydalis solida 'Dieter Schacht'

From the Munich Botanic Garden 'Dieter Schacht' is similar to 'Beth Evens' but a better multiplier, scapes of soft pink flowers with a white flash on the spur; it remains a highly desirable clone.____ZONE 4

Corydalis solida 'George Baker'

Corydalis solida 'George Baker'

Considered by many to be the best solida, it is indeed an outstanding plant, flower color does vary considerably with temperature and soil pH and it would seem there is more than one clone circulating under this name. We find plants in the garden are always much richer colored than they are in pots in the greenhouse.
