An improved hybrid of C. moorcroftiana x C. wilsonii, Canary Feathers Corydalis bring gardeners with cool shady locations a bright alternative to standard shade garden inhabitants. Growing much more vigorously, with larger flowers and more of them, Canary Feathers brings the best of its parent plants and quickly outshines them. With its fern-like dark green foliage and its bright spikes of tubular yellow flowers, you will soon have a new favorite shade garden perennial.

Native to temperate areas of the Northern Hemisphere, including the mountain regions of East Africa, Corydalis is reliably hardy in Zones 6-9. It thrives best in cool summer climates, and will go dormant in hot humid summer regions. Although some Zone 5 gardeners can successfully grow Corydalis, you may find yourself cutting it back and providing winter protection in order for it to survive the harsher winters. It may bloom well into the fall in areas that it thrives in, gracing shady areas even longer with its bright color.

Canary Feathers Corydalis Care

Corydalis prefer a soil with rich humus that drains well. They are typically not drought tolerant, but can withstand the hot summer months better than its parent varieties. It doesn’t typically survive well in Zone 9 summers, though, as it needs the winter chill to prepare for the spring emergence. Water regularly for best results. This long blooming perennial prefers an acidic to neutral soil, but tolerates other conditions reasonably well. They also tolerate a full sun location if in a cool summer climate. You typically do not need to fertilize these long blooming perennials as long as the soil is rich in nutrients.

Deadheading will gain you a sparse rebloom and may be worth the effort. The plant will go dormant for the winter. Pruning is not needed and not recommended. You can divide this perennial every 2 to 4 years for best performance. You may find that it performs well in hanging baskets and patio containers, although they will not be winter hardy when used in this manner.

Canary Feathers Corydalis Spacing

Space your plants 9 to 12 inches apart for best plant health. Canary Feathers Corydalis grows to about 12 inches tall and wide. Although not susceptible to most plant diseases nor insect infestations, some aphids and thrips infestations are possible and can be treated with insecticidal soap applications. Plant these lovely bright bloomers in shady borders, rock gardens and woodland edgings for best effect.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
