Corydalis Blue Heron is a relatively new introduction from its native China, and very beautiful, with finely divided blue grey foliage and dangling tubular flowers of exquisite sapphire blue. Plus, they’re lightly scented. A fantastic sight in spring and beyond. Likes some shade. Any reasonable soil but not too dry. 12 in. 1 litre pot.
