The closest relatives of this striking genus are the bleeding hearts. The Greek name, meaning “crested lark,” alludes to the elegant bird-like appearance of the flowers, which grow in racemes among ferny foliage.
Keenly selected on a collecting trip to Sichuan, China by Dan Hinkley, ‘Blue Heron’ heralds the largest, darkest, richly blue blooms of all our Corydalis offerings. Finely divided blue-green foliage becomes a gossamer-like backdrop for the fragrant sapphire-blue flowers, whose extraordinary cool colors can be enjoyed near fellow shade dweller Epimedium ‘Frohnleiten’.
Size: 9" high x 12" wide.
