Corydalis lutea

Corydalis lutea
Synonym(s) Pseudofumaria lutea
Common name yellow corydalis
Family fumariaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-7)
Flowers yellow
Size 1 ft
Light part-full shade
Cultural notes needs reliable moisture
From seed self-seeds in our garden

Yellow flowers cover the ferny blue-green mound over a long period in mid to late spring. In our garden, a mostly shady spot works best. Allow some seedlings to survive to replace the mother plant every few years.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
