We have this growing against a wall. It is a small plant, maybe a foot tall. Aren’t the leaves pretty and interesting? I like the colour as well – yellowy green in the young leaves and then colder and bluer in the mature leaves.
You can see the little tubular yellow flowers peeping out behind the leaves.
It has another names – yellow corydalis and rock fumewort – and it is in the poppy family and native to the foothills of the Alps in Italy and Switzerland.
It grows wild in the south of the UK wherever it finds a crack in a wall to give it somewhere to start from. It’s invasive and will spread (but ours hasn’t) and I wonder who first introduced it to the UK?
