Corydalis ‘Berry Exciting’


USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.167.080

A hybrid selection that absolutely shines, forming a low mound of ferny yellow leaves, streaked in chartreuse. Upright stems bear clusters of fragrant tubular flowers in a beautiful dusky purple shade. Best in regions with cool summers, where the plants can be in flower from spring right through to late fall. In hot areas plants generally go dormant in mid summer, sometimes coming up again in the fall, or otherwise in spring. Choose a rich, woodland soil that remains evenly moist. Dislikes summer drought. Evergreen in mild winter regions. A 2007 introduction from Terra Nova Nurseries, a mutation of ‘Blackberry Wine’. USPP#18917: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
