Corydalis curviflora var. rosthornii Blue Heron

<i>Corydalis curviflora</i> var. <i>rosthornii</i> ‘Blue Heron’

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.

The refreshing cool colors command our attention amid fellow shade dweller Epimedium ‘Frohnleiten’.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
