Can you tell me anything about it? I've read that it blooms all summer?

I'll be interested to see any responses - I just planted my first corms about a month ago.

Sounds like a tough one to grow . From what I read it does not tolerate heat or humidity or wet soil during winter.Also said that it is a short lived perennial.

When you get down to it though, not many plants like wet feet in winter. Those of us with clay soil can attest to that- many such plants are short lived. I was more concerned about things I read about "reseeds proflically" and "will grow out of cracks in sidewalks or stone walls", afraid that it might take over my yard. Many, many plants have tried.

I was impressed by info that it blooms all summer in shade.

I have grown it a couple times and can say it is short lived, or does not like my place. It is still worth giving it a try , very beautiful plant . Yes to the question it does bloom all year but only lightly after the first full flush in late spring.
My first plant came from a lady who had several plants and they were huge , she said she had them a long time and had divided them several times .
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Oh, Cinda, that's pretty. Do those flowers attract hummingbirds? They look like they should.

Hummingbirds arrive rather late here and this flower is in full bloom in April and early May so I have not seen hummers around it .

Corydalis lutea is almost to willing here in Utah. It seeds all over my yard and I pull and discard bushels of it each year. I do like it with my hosta though so don't get rid of it completely..as if I could. It does bloom all summer and the foliage is wonderful with hosta.

Paul, Ive read GE is a slow grower. Do you find it so? How old are yours?

GE is a slow grower but well worth the wait. Mine are several years old. I grow it in three places in the yard. The ones pictured get good morning sun. They also like a little extra water and fertilizer. I give them some Miracle Grow several times during the summer. Look at it on the data base.
Thumb of 2011-11-22/Paul2032/05934e How can I resist it. My absolute favorite.

I agree with Cinda, great combo!

Now, I just figured out my corms aren't C. lutea, they're C. solida 'Beth Evans'. Hope they live longer than the lutea!

As far as I know that the Corydalis lutea sometimes known as the yellow-colored bleeding heart. It has delicate blue-green vegetation that is protected with smooth yellow-colored blossoms from springtime through summer.

Corydalis lutea grows very easily here. It tolerates dry shade very well (the place I find it most useful) and blooms throughout the season.
