Product Description

This beautiful and unusual perennial has so much to offer. Deep blue-green divided foliage in neat clumps give rise to red-tinged stems bearing absolutely stunning electric blue tubular flowers with white throats from late spring until mid summer. What's more, the flowers are wonderfully scented!

'Blue Heron' isn't fussy about its soil, and is happy in sun or shady spots. The neat and compact form makes it perfect for growing at the front of beds and borders, as naturally neat edging or covering the empty spaces underneath other plants. Originally a woodland plant, it looks gorgeous dotted through a group of trees too.

Supplied as a jumbo plug, ready to pot up and grow on if necessary, or plant out. Growing to a height and spread of 30cm (1ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

Corydalis may go dormant in very dry summers, so keep it well watered.

Care Guide

  • Best grown in humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in a semi-shaded position, avoiding exposed locations. Will grow well in a sunny border if kept regularly watered to stop it becoming dormant in the summer.
  • As the plant dies back the leaves will yellow and the stems wither - at this point you can cut them down to ground level, and you may get a second flush.
  • When new growth emerges in spring, add a slow-release fertiliser to the soil to encourage longer blooming, and continue to feed and wather throught the growing season.
  • Look out for slugs and snails eating young leaves.
  • Propagate by division in autumn.
