Corydalis caucasica



This reliable and attractive species makes large purple flowers in dense honey-scented spikes. From a short distance away the overall impression is very like an Early Purple 0rchid, but it is even earlier.

Flowers from February onwards and lasts well in the cool of early spring. Easy in light shade where it will both flower freely, increase gently underground and seed about a little but no matter how it increases it is never a weed.
