Corydalis paschei

Corydalis paschei Lidén is only known from two small colonies in SW Anatolia, Turkey where it grows on moist rocky slopes. The pale pink to violet-pink flowers are large with broad outer petals and an ascending inflated spur and are held in a lax raceme on long pedicels. The foliage is divided and subdivided into three curled and twisting leaflets. Although very rare in the wild, it is considered easy to grow in leafy loam in light shade. Photos from John Lonsdale.
