Corydalis

The closest relatives of this striking genus are the bleeding hearts. The Greek name, meaning “crested lark,” alludes to the graceful, birdlike appearance of the flowers, which grow in racemes among ferny foliage.

Corydalis flexuosa ‘Purple Leaf’ partial shade

With an intriguing royal purple hue infusing each leaf, this low clumping species is the earliest blooming Corydalis we offer, bearing smoky periwinkle-blue flowers throughout the winter in our garden. The lovely leaf color holds best in partial shade.

Blooms November–May.

Size: 10" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
