Woodland Corydalis

Here is a new one for me...Corydalis speciosa. Just starting. Seeds came from Jacques Thompson who in turn got them direct from a person in China or Korea, can't remember which. Obviously related to C. wilsonii and that kin.

What an interesting contrast between the yellow flowers and red stems!

A couple of new Corydalis have started flowering the last weeks. If I dig in my files maybe I can find the names but not today. I took these pictures today in lovely weather but still cold nights.

Love the blue corydalis....I need to try some.  I've grown the Blue Panda but it does not like our climate and the plants died after 2 years.

I believe the yellow one is probably C. marshalliana.

Mark, I am late in following up this thread! Maybe you are right but C. bracteata is a possibility too. The blue one have I found to be C. fumariifolia (first pic).
The second picture is a nice woodland plant C. cheilanthifolia slowly spreading to make a nice clump. The third and fourth picture are still unknown. This one popped up as a stray plant when I sowed some seed of a Chinese shrub. The plant is increasing well and about 1 1/2' high.

Saw a photo of C. bracteata on the Scottish Forum recently, and being a nice solida-looking yellow, you're probably right that yours might be bracteata.  The unknown yellow is very nice.  If you know it is from China, you could go through the keys to narrow down an identity, there are only about 500 species in China ;D  But seriously, it'll probably just need to be one of those unnamed plants that one enjoys, I have my share of such things :D  Oh, and I liked the C. fumariifolia, love them blue Corydali.

And Todd, forgot to comment previously, I love that C. speciosa... the red stems really set off the yellow flowers.  Are you growing it outside in the garden or in a greenhouse?

Harold, that's a nice Corydalis.  I happened to see this same species, C. ellipicarpa, shown on the Scottish Forum recently as well.  What is your source, was it from NARGS seed?  I'll have to keep an eye out for it... a nice alternative to C. lutea which wants to take over my garden.  Not sure how long you've grown it, it would be good to learn of its seedling/spreading inclinations.
