Here are pictures of my plants from last spring.
Corydalis 'Boyar'.

Corydalis caucasica 'Borodino' in sunlight (backlight), same in shade in the background.

Both outstanding forms Leena :)
I think Boyar differs from having more flowers/stem and more densely packed than Borodino. The way you showed them both, I could tell which one is which :)

Thank you Marc and Gabriela.

You are right how the flowers differ. 'Boyar' is sterile, but 'Borodino' seeds come true, or close to it.

Gabriela, very nice different colours, and early. :)

May is  the time for Corydalis nobilis to shine, and although it has been shown here a lot, here it is. And I am still waiting for it to 'invade' my garden  ;) (it was a discussion a few years ago about this....).


And about to go dormant, a Corydalis which I suspect of being kusneztovii origin, which is very fragrant.
