  Any Corydalis may 'Estivate' - go dormant from heat but especially so IN our greenhouses where, in pots above ground, the roots get much warmer than they ever would in garden soil.  They return when in a cooler setting.  This is not reflective of what they do in the ground which is never 100 degrees as our greenhouses can be so it rarely happens in the garden.

USE NO CHEMICALS ON CORYDALIS.  Fortunately, they aren't bothered by much of anything that needs chemicals.

Corydalis 'Blackberry Wine'      Zone: 5-8A        cool areas,

Corydalis 'Blackberry Wine'An amazing new corydalis from China that is taking the trade by storm.  Usually corydalis dislike heat and have to live in the shade but this guy will take full sun or light shade in superbly drained soil and grow to a stunning 24" wide clump topped with fragrant, wine-purple flowers from mid-April through November.  Will take sun but there is more chance it will Estivate (go dormant from summer heat) when placed in sun in warm zones.  In medium shade, ours never goes dormant in zone 7.  Some sources list it only for Sun/Light shade but we grow ours under an 80% shade cloth or a huge pine tree, which is pretty deep shade.  They 'stretch' a bit but otherwise do fine.

Takes rocky, dry shade where it self-seeds creating blue-green lacy, finely divided foliaged plants in lovely drifts.  In mid-March, 5/8" FRAGRANT creamy white blooms with white spurs and with a yellow lip appear and just keep coming until November surviving the first light frosts.  I can't think of another plant that blooms that long.  Takes root competition so find under shrubs.  This plant is a must have in the woodland garden.  Unique for Corydalis in that it takes full sun.  Takes dry spots, moist but well-drained neutral best.

  Hardy Cyclamen -- are bulbs!

In spring, they are starting to go summer dormant, losing foliage and feeder roots, which will return in Fall.  We strongly recommend if yours arrive dormant that you plant them in well-drained soil and leave them alone.  Watering dormant plants in pots is somewhere between a skill and an art - and not so easy.  Put them in we'll drained soil, where they actually like 'root competition' from trees and let Mother Nature do the watering.  They need no extra water when dormant.  Note, they like root competition, even from a maple tree BUT they don't like foliage competition, so don't let their neighbors crowd them.

PRICING- - Plants are priced by Leaf/Bloom Color and Age/Size)  -- More sought after coloration and/or  larger/older bulbs are more expensive.

Cyclamen graecum   Greek CyclamenNot especially hardy BUT if you're in a warm zone with scree, rock garden or superb drainage or are skilled at pot culture (dry when dormant), this sun-loving species, hailing from Greece, has the most beautiful foliage of the Genus and extremely elegant flowers, opening in early Fall.  By in large pink, there is the occasional white.  The foliage is highly variable, almost like velvet when it unfurls with striking silver or pewter marking.  Moore (1996) says "...the basic colour is dark green, though all shades from black/green through grey/green to lime green can be found. The leaf pattern is usually contrasting blotches or bands of cream, green, grey or silver. The combinations are so numerous that a collection of different leaf forms could be a study in itself."   Will take frost IF the tuber is buried deeply.  They appreciate decayed pine needles!  They do not like over-potting, so repot when the bulb really needs to get out of the pot!
