Truly aqua blue flowers on this corydalis. Most blue colors in the garden have notes of lavender or sea green, but this one is actually, truly brilliant blue. You'll have lots of time to enjoy the color, this cultivar produces a first flush in spring, and then reblooms in late summer to fall. 
The foliage is slightly bluish too, also picking up notes of bronze. Corydalis is a shade-loving plant, so Porcelain Blue's extraordinary look can tantalize in the darker corners of the garden that rarely get so much attention.
 
Plant in shade borders. 

 

Quick Facts

Plant Care

Water: Medium 
Maintenance: Low
 
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Prefers rich, moist soils that never dry out in part shade, however drainage must be good and incorporating gravel into the soil may benefit a planting. Wet soils in winter can be fatal.
Generally intolerant of hot and humid summer conditions. May aggressively self-seed in the garden in optimum growing conditions. If foliage significantly depreciates in hot summers, plants may be cut back to basal leaves.
 
No serious insect or disease problems.
