We at Men's Sheds Treorchy are looking for aromatic plants. Could anyone help with suggestions?
Corydalis genus. In this genus there are about 300 different species of spring and summer flowering annuals and tuberous or fibrous-rooted perennials, some of which are evergreen. The leaves are deeply dissected and in basal tufts. The flowers are small and tubular and will bloom in spikes or clusters of pink-creams, yellows or purples.
Annuals, Perennials or Biennials, Herbaceous
Grown for the tubular, spurred, 2-lipped flowers or their fern like leaves.
They are fully to frost hardy and will need full sun and partial shade with well drained soil.
You can propagate by seed in autumn or by division when dormant; autumn for spring flowering species and spring for summer flowering species.
Slugs and snails may be a problem, aphids under glass.
