Corydalis aurea A. A. Reznicek


Gravelly or rocky openings near shores, but most typical of sandy or gravelly areas 1–2 years after disturbance along roadsides, clearings, trails, gravel or sand pits, and similar settings. Most frequent in calcareous soils near the straits. Very local inland and southward.

Often found with Capnoides sempervirens and of similar ecological position, dying out quickly if conditions are stable, but this is a less glaucous, more sprawling plant with more finely divided leaves.
