- True-blue flowers every year
- Happy in dry, shady spots and in dappled shade
- Enjoy a wave of rare sky-blue tubular flowers
Look forward to rare deep-blue flowers of Corydalis calycosa; this fumitory that suits a cottage garden display actually thrives in those tricky dry shady spots where other flowers can’t make it. It’s not every day you chance upon sky-blue flowers so maximise on this rare perennial.
Happy grown on patios or balcony too in containers Corydalis calycosa brings the outdoor space to life even if you don’t have a garden with surrounding beds. The flowers of Corydalis calycosa complement other alpine and rock garden flowers like Pulsatilla, wood anenomes, erythroniums and even seasonal dwarf tulips.
Pair Corydalis calycosa with the interesting trailing leaves of helichrysum or creeping Jenny if you decide to grow this flower in containers. All these varieties thrive in dappled shade.
Plant in a well-aired compost such as John Innes No2 or a potting compost, with a not-to-rich but balanced level of nutrients.
