Corydalis 'Canary Feathers' - Talk about flower-power! This, our showiest and most vigorous Corydalis introduced to date, is a blooming machine in foiled or unfoiled pots or in the garden. This hybrid is tolerant of partial sun and is a great highlight in shady spots where it combines well with our silver leaf Heuchera and Pulmonaria. This fantastic container plant blooms so long that early frosts can cut its life short, so some protection may be needed. Prefers moist, well-drained soils.

Glad I read this since I was thinking of planting sunchokes! Do not plant sunchokes in a standard garden bed, or field, or anywhere else you might like to grow other plants at some time in the future. You will spend very large amounts of time attempting to remove them if you do. Plant them in their own area, that can be mowed around, to keep them under control.
