I guess if it's Corydalis solida which is tuberous....ah, just seen the adverts to the right......:-)

Yes, it is a corydalis bulb. Do you grow C. malkensis?

good then i have not totally lost it.
I grow this one which is C solida, on of the blue ones, Pierre David and the very 'weed one' the common yellow one.
I will certainly by getting others in the months to come as i really like them.

I suspect you will grow quite a few Bulbaholic.

I have just googled it , it is beautiful.

so is it a bulb or a corm. Its looks more like a corm to me but i didnt want to cut it up to find out.

To be technically correct, Sbg, it is a tuber. I tend to use the term 'bulb' as a general word to cover corms and tubers alike. Some Corydalis have fibrous roots.

I've got Corydalis ochraleuca, Sbg. That has roots. I could pot one up for you in the spring, if you'd like one?

thanks Bulbaholic i really do like to know the proper description of it. I could dissect it but that would be counter productive :o)

yes please spritz :o)))
