Favorite or New Plant
Fumitory (Corydalis lutea) is a graceful, little plant that performs well in shade or sun and is reminiscent of a bleeding heart. It has ferny, blue-green foliage and bright, small, yellow flowers all summer long. It grows about 8 inches high and self-seeds enough that you will always have some. Even though it pops up in many places in the garden, the seedlings are usually welcome or easy to remove if it becomes untidy.
