Bill,
I have the first two.
Well, my first one is purple and I wanted the blue but they were miss marked *one of my pet peeves* but I [Love] enjoyed [Love] it just the same, it seemed to bloom forever, but I think it was the spring last year. *It didn't bloom as long this year*
And the Pulsatilla is a gorgerous plant, [thumb] the flowers are great and the texture on the leaves is a grand interest and it's like soft hair.
Stays nice through out the summer where I had it, the base of an out door open compost pile.....
I'll have to look for that 3rd one.
Thanks
Weezie

Jiffy,
The first one, Corydalis comes in blue, purple and yellow, and they are a happy flower when you look at them, I loved mine. I guess there is a few other colors, I've seen pcitures, but not to firmiliar with them. (white, pink, red, lot's)
I really think they like moist and shade, Not wet.
I would think you'd be able to grow them, but I think only one color reseeds, the yellow????????
Corydalis Elata zones 5~7b loves the heat of our Eastern end.....(That's a blue one)Check them out on Google for your area and zone..........
