Corydalis bracteata

Quick Characteristics:

Life form: tuber

Corydalis bracteata (Steph. ex Willd.) Pers. is from the foothills of the Sayan mountains in central Siberia and has been in cultivation since the early 19th. century. Every year in the late summer whilst the plant may appear to be dormant a new tuber grows from within the old one see here. Jack Elliott recommended growing it in a shady position in well drained but humus rich soil. The name bracteata derives from the plants bracts. Photographs by John Lonsdale.
