  3. Wow! That last photo is the bomb! What a brilliant blue! I don't have any Corydalis, but if I did, in my garden, I'm pretty sure is would be Crispydalis.:0)

  4. I had two that didn't come back, and another, the native yellow one, that came back and brought her entire family, lots of little babies all over. I am just so jealous of that gorgeous blue flower in that closeup!

  9. They are so delicate. I would love to be able to smell them. They seem tiny. I've seen them in magazines and didn't realize how small they were. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I bought some Corydalis 'Blue Heron' just recently...a new plant for me. Can't wait for the blue blooms! Our area is zone 7b- 8a so I am hoping it will be ok. Have it under some shrubs...for good shade. Yours are lovely, hope mine are half that nice.

  14. Fabulous photos, Tatyana. I love this plant, even if I can't grow it because of my dry soil and bad habit of crowding plants. Enjoying yours vicariously has been very nice.

  15. Having been an ardent fan of the blue flowering species, I have quite a few in the garden. C.f 'Blue Panda' has the iciest of blue flowers, and is usually the first to go dormant, but with water every other day I have managed to keep it flowering, so far! I grew C.elata but have found that it doesn't really live up to my somewhat tough standards. I tried C.c var. rosthornii 'Blue Heron' but here in Zone 5 there isn't much chance of it overwintering! My fave at the moment is Corydalis 'Wildside Blue' a seedling from the garden of Keith Wiley in England. Reminds me of C.elata but is much more robust in all of its parts. So nice to see another blue Cory fan! Cheers

  16. Wow, very pretty! I don't know if I've even seen a Corydalis in person before. It's very delicate looking.

  17. That is a most amazing blue. I really like Corydalis and find myself wondering why its been so long since we had it in our garden, great foliage as well.

  18. That last macro shot is spectacular!

  19. What a gorgeous woodland plant! I think our summer heat would be too intense for it. At best it would go dormant. But yours is so lovely I am tempted to try!

  20. Great photos! Enjoyed my visit here!

  21. I'm in love! ! beautiful flower)

  22. I wish I had this Corydalis, but I grow C. heterocarpa and it is doing far too well, practically a weed.

  23. I have the yellow variety of Cordyalis and it is very prolific. I do let it reseed and just pull it out if it interferes with other plants. It had a little problem with our intense heat but I am sure it will survive.
