Product Description

This beautiful and unusual perennial has so much to offer and is perfect for adding some unusual colour and texture to your floral displays.

Rising from the bluey-green and bronzed foliage, 'Porcelain Blue' will produce tall, slender stems of aqua blue flowers. In bloom from May to June, this fabulous perennial will treat your garden to a second flowering around September time. They look great in modern pots and planters yet blend effortlessly into mixed perennial borders and more traditional plantings.

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. Very hardy and robust, it will re-appear the following Spring bigger and better.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to pot on or plant out.

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.
