Corydalis vittae

Corydalis vittae Kolak. grows in subalpine limestone meadows in Georgia at the elevation of 2200 m (7200 ft). It has deeply divided leaves and 6 to 16 flowers, white tinged purple with the spur of the upper petal curving upward. Plants grown as this species are sometimes Corydalis kusnetzovii instead. That species is more robust with the upper petal less ascending and even down-curved. Photo from John Lonsdale.
