This US native has rapidly become one of our favorite corydalis. Although it is a short-lived perennial or possibly an annual in some areas, it reseeds enough so that you will never be without. The very finely dissected foliage of powder blue serves as a perfect foil for the bright yellow flowers in early spring for more than a month...very spectacular!
