Corydalis ‘Purple Leaf’

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

This plant is no longer for sale from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. It is strictly on our website for information purposes only.

Up before the robins in spring, this bronzy-leafed fumitory is vigorous, rhizomatous, early blooming and long lived. Plants are more compact than the type and are charming in the rock garden, or scrambling around stepping-stones. A great lacy contrast to Heuchera 'Lime Rickey'. Fragrant, violet-blue flowers abound in early spring. May go summer dormant.
