A very early flowering Corydalis which will gently seed about but never becomes a nuisance. Lovely spikes of delicate, creamy-white flowers rise above blue-green, fern-like foliage. Foliage disappears by early summer allowing it to be grown under or around later-flowering plants.
Prefers a well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Summer dormant.
Height: 4 - 6 inches / 10 - 15cm
AGM: The RHS Award of Garden Merit. Plants awarded an AGM are:

This charming little plant is rarely offered for sale but should be more widely grown. It's a real gem and one of my personal favourites. As it flowers early in the year it gives the feeling of hopefulness that spring is just around the corner and the gardening season is beginning again.
