I have three different 'yellow flowered' Corydalis going on here.
I have loads of one I think is lutea. I think there is a tiny brown spotch on each flower but I don't find that in google images.
I have a medium stock of cheilanthifolia- the ferny corydalis has long fern frond like leaves and pale yellow flowers on longer stems. This foliage is easy to tell from the first one. (I wanted to share this, but only just finding the massive crop of seedlings, today) Pretty sure ferny one came with a plant from the swap at hart's nearly a decade ago. Interestingly, I have watched ants collect these seeds and carry them off.
And this year I found one with slightly different leaves, lobes more rounded, and flowers entirely yellow. sp micrantha would be a native one.

Any of you know of specific ones you have and could have shared with me? Even if you've only grown them, I think ants could have gifted me with it, in another shared plant.

I have both varieties that you have, Sally. The ferny one actually came from you. It had two leaves and was growing out of a drainage hole of the pot of the plant you gave me. I thought it was an interesting little something and kept it. Then it bloomed the following spring. Now there are lots of it.

I bought Corydalis 'berry exciting' twice, but my garden was just too cold for it. My neighbor said we are in the coldest spot of the entire Montgomery county Grumbling . Anyway, this fancy Corydalis didn't survive the winter in my garden. Now come to think of it, I bet it will be very happy in your garden.
