Corydalis ‘Blackberry Wine’
This early-emerging beauty has blue-green, ferny leaves which provide a backdrop for hundreds of fragrant flowers the color of blackberry wine. It holds its slightly silvered foliage all spring, summer, and fall with a cascading habit, excellent in baskets or over walls. Takes heat and humidity! Cut back after bloom to freshen foliage.
