Product Description

The closest relatives of this striking genus are the bleeding hearts. The Greek name, meaning “crested lark,” alludes to the graceful, birdlike appearance of the flowers, which grow in racemes among ferny foliage. Corydalis ‘BlueLine®’  Exalted for its taller, more robust and long flowering visage, this exciting new Corydalis flexuosa and Corydalis elata cross was bred in France and recently introduced in England and the United States. Embodying the best qualities of both parents, ‘Blue Line’s vigorous fine cut foundation maintains a reliable summer presence, highlighting a honey-scented flood of white-throated, deep metallic blue blossoms on tall reddish tinted stems. The eye-catching flowers keep coming from spring ’til fall. Needs partial to full shade for best results. Blooms May–September. Mature Size: 1 1/2 feet tall x 2 feet wide; hardy to zone 5. All sales are final for this plant.
  • Prefers filtered sun or partial to full shade

    Disappointing

    Posted by Wrenn on Aug 11th 2022

    I have no problem with the size of the pot the plant came in (2.5") - I knew it would be small. However, the plant itself is a couple of TINY sprigs. It's like it's literally just sprouted - each sprig is an inch or less tall. I will be surprised if it survives. Again, I have no problem with the small pot, but sending such an immature plant is very disappointing.

    This is my second time buying this difficult to find Corydalis from Hirts because I lost it the first time. It was my own lack of knowledge of the plant, got nice heathy plant from Hirts. Here in Washington State we have the native pink version and it grows in gravel along logging roads. As a tuber it seems to need good drainage to prevent rot, mine rotted the first time in a pot. Provide good draining soil and they'll flourish. This year in good soil both the Blue Line and Blue Heron that I also purchased from Hirts are flourishing. In wetter areas like the northwest I'd recommend, from experience with my first year's failure, to plant directly in the garden and skip the pot. The native pink here thrives in gravel with very little moisture during the summer, seemingly drought tolerant. Also, my pink would not bloom in total shade, needs speckled sunlight but not full sun. The native here is always under Giant Maple, Alder. Never seen under conifers. I also had an infestation of fungus gnats (from here, NOT Hirts!) and the larvae love Corydalis tubers which helped with my first year's failure. Watch for these lil buggers! Hope this helps yours thrive too!

    Blue Line Bleeding Heart

    I ordered two of these plants and they arrived very promptly in little pots and in very good condition. They've been in the ground for about two weeks and are looking very promising.
