Corydalis, is a large genus in the poppy family, Papaveraceae,  with over 300 species, the majority native to the Himalayas and China. Many are woodland plants which thrive in moist soil and semi-shade.

Propagation:


Division in spring.


Seed – needs cold stratification, best sown in September - October.

Seed just covered and stored outside until germination. Germination can be slow and the seed may germinate a year later, so it‘s important to not throw it away prematurely. Seed has short viability so it‘s important to sow it as soon as possible. Optimum germination temperature is 5-15°C (40-60°F)

Yellow corydalis has recently been moved to a new genus, Pseudofumaria. Self seeds moderately.
