Catch sunshine for your shade garden this season with yellow flowering Canary Feathers Corydalis (Corydalis 'Canary Feathers'). Brighten up your dimly lit corners with these canary yellow blooms!

Spectacular blooms appear in summer and last through fall. Tall 9-inch spikes reach high above the mounded foliage, and produce a plethora of tubular flowers that are beloved by hummingbirds.

This low-growing, long-blooming perennial will softly fill in at the edge of your plantings. Starting in early spring, their delicate blue-green foliage creates a lush look.

Keep them in containers or hanging baskets as a very effective "Filler". In the ground, consider them a dynamic, compact layer of long-lasting color and space them 12 inches apart.

They'll do terrific in less than four hours of sunlight a day. Decorate a north or east-facing balcony with this showy shade bloomer!

This Proven Winners® selection is recommended by the Dallas Arboretum. The softly lobed, compound foliage delivers very pretty visual appeal to your landscape.

Coordinate this selection in front of larger Great Expectations Hosta to pick up the gold-tones. Or let their bold flowers contrast with the textured, blue-green leaves of Elegans Hosta.

Naturalize Canary Feathers in your woodland scenes for a nectar-rich bounty. You'll support the needs of beneficial pollinators in your local ecosystem!

Use them to spice up a neglected bare spot where other flowering plants might languish. Corydalis spreads nicely to fill in as groundcover.

This natural hybrid Corydalis performs well and is blissfully easy to grow. It partners beautifully with our other shade-loving perennials...from Ferns to Hosta and Astilbe.

Lovely Canary Feathers Corydalis has no serious pest or disease issues with moderate water requirements. Rabbits tend to pass it by, but you'll be so pleased to see all the butterflies it attracts.

Order enough Canary Feathers Corydalis to complete your project at once. Professional designers can and do buy out our entire inventory of this popular plant.
