Corydalis Craigton Blue

I have been waiting for this Corydalis Craigton Blue to flower since I ordered it last year from Kevock. It did not flower that year but now it finally has. When the first flower opened I was a bit disappointed the flower seemed small and not very impact full. But now there is a big bunch of them it is actually really nice.

The way the newer flowers start out with a bit of purple and then fading to a sky blue gives them a pleasing iridescence. I keep this one in one of the shadow containers with the acid soil. It looks quite happy and if it ever outgrows the container I will probably divide and plant some out into the garden as well. For now I'm quite happy seeing this flower and look forward for the other couple of flower stalks that are still developing.
