Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Canary Feathers Fumewort, Yellow Fumewort

General Description

Offering sunny flowers and a long bloom season that rival those of Corydalis lutea, this sterile hybrid perennial does not share that species' penchant for self-sowing. Its dense spires of relatively large yellow blooms appear in abundance from spring to fall atop calf-high mounds of feathery blue-green foliage. Each bloom has a gaping yellow-blotched mouth and a tubular back-facing spur. No seeds are produced.

This hardy perennial grows most vigorously in partial shade and moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil, but will succeed in many other situations, including cool sunny locations. It is ideal for patios, wall plantings, and shady perennial borders.
