Corydalis solida ‘Early Pink’ is a very early flowering Corydalis that brings a bright pink colour to the garden when little else has begun to get going. It’s flowers start white with pink lips, before settling down to a bright pink.

‘Early Pink’ is an excellent plant which was miss-sold to me as a red-flowered Corydalis several years ago. I suspect it is a seedling which accidentally found it’s way into cultivation; I couldn’t claim the credit myself. As a result, I have given it the rather unimaginative name ‘Early Pink’. To provide a longer period of flower, it works well as a precursor to the widely available ‘Beth Evans‘.

Here in Birmingham, I grow all of the C. solida cultivars in raised beds enriched with leaf mould every year. An oak tree provides shade at the tail end of spring, but for most of it’s growing period, the plants get full morning sun. I have found Corydalis to be quite forgiving of soil type, but moisture retentive but well drained soil seems to serve them well.
