The mild winter we have had so far has coaxed Corydalis cheilanthifolia into early flower!
This is a short-lived clump-forming perennial, growing to about 6 - 8" in height and the same width, but seeds itself readily, so you are never without a
few plants dotted around to replace any that die. It bears pretty spikes of yellow flowers for several months, and the ferny foliage is also good for flower
arranging as it lasts well in floral foam.
