Corydalis ‘Berry Exciting’
Brilliant yellow, fern-like leaves are streaked green and erupt in fragrant purple flowers. This wonderful mutation of C. 'Blackberry Wine' is one of the few Corydalis that does not go summer dormant. Its vigorous cascading habit makes it an excellent groundcover and looks great spilling out of baskets and over banks. We've seen it used as a different component plant and it’s always a stunner in the spring garden! Takes heat and humidity!
