Corydalis lutea

YELLOW CORYDALIS

Buy Yellow Lutea online. A dainty and refined shade perennial. Fresh green, maiden-hair-like leaves are held in softly layered tiers. In late spring, clusters of yellow flowers hover just above the foliage. Although the heaviest blooms are in late spring, yellow lutea will continue to flower through mid-autumn if kept moist. Great in cottage gardens and shady rock gardens. Reseeds prolifically.
