I received a corydalis plant in a swap a couple of years ago, and it finally really spread this year. I'd like to add it to the database, but it doesn't quite match the Corydalis lutea, so I'm hesitant to put it there. I'm hoping someone can find a better match for it.




These pics were taken back in February in North Georgia.

Thanks!

It looks a very happy Corydalis! Could be Corydalis heterocarpa var japonica

The leaves look more green this Japanese botanical site ..

More bluish on this one .. but it looks correct.

I believe you're right!! Thanks, Janet!!

It's really very pretty, but I just read where it can be invasive. But it was nice to have such color that early in the year, and best of all, the deer completely ignored them!!

Heading to add it to the database now! Big Grin

I tip my hat to you. There's isn't any photos in the database, it will make a great addition! I wouldn't mind having that one myself! Green Grin!
