Corydalis ‘Craigton Blue’

Vigorous new hybrid. Intense sky blue flowers above pale green foliage in early summer. Humus rich but well well drained soil. Part shade. Height 40cm.



A large diverse genus of herbaceous woodland annuals and perennials. We only offer perennial varieties which come in two distinct types the flexuosa hybrids and the solida group which form tubers. Both have fine ferny foliage and small snapdragon like flowers. Similar to dicentra,to which they are related, they have a wider colour range including some stunning blues. While the species and tuberous forms are summer dormant, some of the newer hybrids will repeat flower through the summer-’Kingfisher’ being the best example.
