Corydalis ochroleuca

This evergreen ferny little plant blooms on and off most of the year.  It has happily reseeded so I have spread them throughout the shady garden.  Yes, corydalis prefers shade.  I also have corydalis 'Blackberry Wine', that dies back in the heat, but spreads a good six feet, producing its purple blooms for several months in spring.  Most corydalis have blue or yellow blossoms.  I prefer this white with green and yellow markings, but corydalis is a species I plan to pursue.
