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.
Native to rocky woods and naturalized on old walls in Europe, this is one of the most beautiful foil plants for a shady garden. The lacy bluish green foliage and creamy white flowers with green lips and yellow throats add a delicate touch to crevices or walls. For more brightness, we combine this almost year-round bloomer with Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ and Brunnera ‘Silver Wings’.
Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Corydalis ochroleuca (P-0387)
