Corydalis ‘Canary Feathers’


USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.167.550

An outstanding hybrid selection, this forms a low mound of ferny blue-green leaves, bearing upright spikes of showy canary-yellow flowers over a long season, starting in late spring. Best in regions with cool summers. In hot areas plants may stop blooming or go dormant in mid summer. Choose a rich, woodland soil that remains evenly moist. Dislikes summer drought. Dies back in winter. Flowers are sterile so self seeding will not be a problem. A 2007 introduction from Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon. May prove to be hardy below Zone 6. USPP#18909: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
