Corydalis flexuosa
'Porcelain Blue'

Insanely bright TURQUOISE blue blooms! For years I wished I could grow blue Corydalis – native to China – but they would die in our temperate, wet Winters. Then I learned of this new hybrid that was said to be perennial in our climate. To our glee it cruised thru Winter to bloom its heart out for several months in Spring and, after cutting it back a bit, it bloomed again in Summer! Lots of upright stems to 14” tall hold 3” spikelets of slender, tubular, white-throated flowers above lacy foliage. And they are deliciously FRAGRANT! We planted a group of 3 in almost full day sun combined with Heliotropium arborescens ‘Alba’ (online) in rich, draining soil – a fragrance free-for-all! To 18” across. Great for front of bed, woodland gardens and containers, too.
