My corydalis has buds

HHassist's picture

I'm guessing this isn't the time of year when a corydalis normally grows flowers, but I just noticed some buds on mine :) I planted it in I think July, so maybe it's gotten its months mixed up or something ;)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing what the flowers look like in real life..... they look beautiful in Dreamer's pic :)

Mary Anne, I don't really know too much about the cordyalis -- I actually only found out about it from reading a post by Dreamer on this board. Then a friend of mine (who also saw the post) found some at a local nursery and bought one for each of us.

From what I understand, it likes a woodland-type environment and being moist. I planted mine sort of under a peegee hydrangea and an iris, so it's mostly in the shade and protected by the bigger plants.

kstyle, I think you're right about our weird summer weather affecting our plants. Although on the positive side, I think our strawberry, raspberry, and cherry seasons seem to have lasted longer than usual.

The plant is tiny and hidden under a big hydrangea, but it's got two flowers :) I've never seen this plant before in real life -- it's cute :)
