I am reading on these forums that the yellow corydalis is easier to grow in this zone. Is corydalis lutea and fumewort the same plant?
I bought a "Canary Feathers" fumewort and killed it. I thought it was dormant, but it did not reappear. I am having trouble finding a "corydalis lutea". Has anyone had luck with these in this region?

Corydalis lutea is an obsolete name for Pseudofumaria lutea, which is sometimes called Yellow Corydalis (Lutea means yellow), Rock Fumewort, or Yellow Rock Fumewort. Fumewort is a common name that, like most common names, can refer to many different types of plants. 'Canary Feathers' is a hybrid between Corydalis moorcroftiana (seed parent) and Corydalis wilsonii (pollen parent). So, 'Canary Feathers' is not a member of the Pseudofumaria lutea species.

If you are still looking for a Pseudofumaria lutea (aka Corydalis lutea), check with Avant Gardens, Forestfarm, or Romence Gardens & Greenhouses for plants or J.L. Hudson Seedsman for seed.
