Corydalis


Corydalis anthriscifolia

This species is an enrichment for the shade garden, simply because of its distinctive foliage. The fern-like foliage unfolds from very thick, swollen leaf bases, over which the large inflorescences come to rest on stems up to 80 cm high. The single flowers are very large and dark purple. Also an introduction by Chen Yi in 2000, from Central Szetchuan from the Woolong Panda Reserve. Unlike other large Corydalis not proliferating.

Corydalis cashmeriana

A species with a great history, very sought after and desired. Introduced by Frank Ludlow and George Sherriff in 1933 and received already in 1938 an AGM from the RHS. Requires an semishady, cool and damp location, grows only about 10 cm tall. Impressive, relatively large flowers, in our variety with unusually sky blue flowers with a darker center. At appealing locations, it forms a dense carpet that spreads slowly and attracts everyone's attention at the height of flowering. Comes from Cashmir to Bhutan out of the high mountains.

Corydalis curviflora var. rosthornii DJHC0615

One of the earliest blue Corydalis that flowers up to three times a year. He has the largest flowers of all varieties, is very robust and almost evergreen, absolutely extraordinary. The purple petioles contrast perfectly with the blue-green foliage and the mid-blue flowers. This is in our opinion the most robust of all blue Corydalis. After harsh winters, he is the first again in the foliage and starts early to bloom. Unfortunately it grows very slowly, it puts all the strength in the flowers. Was collected by Dan Hinkley in 1996 near the Woolong Panda Reserve at 1700 meters altitude. Simply magical in the secluded rockery.

Corydalis curviflora x pachycentra 'Koen van Poucke'

Very beautiful plant, begins as the first of all blue Corydalis with flowering in February or March and blooms intermittently until the end of November, a fantastic cross of Koen Van Poucke from Belgium. During our visit in mid-February 2016, his mother plants were in full bloom in the field. Medium to light blue flowers with a black mark in the center, unique. A vigorous, compact grower , up to 30 cm high. For shady locations in humus rich, well drained soil.

The Corydalis elata group (including all crosses in which C. elata participates) differs from the other blue-flowering Corydalis on the one hand by the later flowering, which usually begins in early June, four weeks later than in the lark spurs of the C. flexuosa group. All varieties smell very strong. On the other hand these strains are less sensitive to heat than others and usually do not go dormant in summer. From extremely stoloniferous to compact growing, there is something for every space available.

Corydalis elata 'Blue Summit'

A wonderful variety of C. elata with dark indigoblue flowers on stems that are stable up to 45 cm high. Of the blue Corydalis, this is the darkest variety. Clearly noticeable scent. It makes stolons, which weave through the planting, so that the flowers appear in many places. This Corydalis never gets annoying because it does not overgrow or even displace other plants. Noteworthy is the enormous heat tolerance and robustness that makes it suitable for many gardens.

Corydalis elata x flexuosa 'Golden Spinners'

This variety has the same good characteristics as 'Spinners', but has an exceptionally bright, golden-green foliage. In combination with the purple petioles even without flowers a striking and special plant. Especially in combination with dark-leaved plants, a high-contrast picture emerges in the shade bed. Forms a cushion up to 30 cm high. The variety was created in the nursery of Susanne and Jürgen Peters by spontaneous mutation in the propagation of Corydalis 'Spinners'.

The varieties of the Corydalis flexuosa group usually bloom in our climate at the beginning of May. The foliage is usually very decorative dotted and drawn elsewhere. This group is slightly more sensitive to heat and drought than other species, usually going dormant in midsummer, reliably releasing in autumn or next spring.

Corydalis flexuosa 'Blue Panda' (Clone 1)

The real clone, first introduced by Reuben Hatch, from 1986. Relatively delicate and tiny, slow-growing and somewhat tender (in hard east-german, continental weather). Sky blue flowers with the typical thin, upward spur for this variety. Dormant in summer. Rather something for collectors, but a wonderful variety.

Corydalis flexuosa 'Blue Panther'

This was the first blue Corydalis, which we got shortly after the turn of the millennium in a hardware store (!). Despite extensive research, nothing more specific to the origins could be found out. This perennial is very robust and absolutely suitable as a beginner's variety. Spreads with short runners. Excessive flowering in early summer. In spring, the foliage has a very fine drawing that distinguishes this variety from all others.

Corydalis flexuosa x cashmeriana 'Kingfisher'

A similarly exceptional hybrid Corydalis as 'Craigton Blue' also features 'Kingfisher' introduced by Keith Lever of the Aberconwy Nursery of North Wales. It has bright blue flowers as in the best forms of C. cashmeriana, only much larger. Unusual is also the long flowering period from March to October. The growth is very compact to 20 cm high and a bit slow. One of our favorite varieties.

Corydalis flexuosa x omeiana 'Craigton Blue'

This variety was a breakthrough in Corydalis breeding, as it was the first to combine the insensitivity of C. omeiana with the beauty of C. flexuosa and a prolonged flowering period. This cross was introduced to culture by Ian Young. It grows compact to 30 cm high and has azure to medium blue flowers, is very robust and should not be missing in any shade garden. Clear jasmine fragrance.

Corydalis shearerii 'Silver Sceptre'

Also a species that is still relatively new to culture. This particular variety was collected in 1996 by Dan Hinkley in Szetchuan at 1950 m altitude. It differs from the pure species by the high-contrast leave drawing. In the garden, it expands slowly through stolons and also delights outside the flowering season with its elegant foliage. In mild regions and winters it remains evergreen and retires only in August for a rest period in the thick, bulbous rhizomes. The flowers are light blue to white with purple edge. Is always offered as C. leucantha. We received our mother plants from Beth Chatto from England.
