PINK CORYDALIS, ROCK HARLEQUIN, PALE CORYDALIS
Corydalis sempervirens of Michigan Flora.
At home on rock ledges and summits, gravelly shores, and piney savanna, but more often to be expected 1–2 years after disturbance along roadsides, clearings, trails, gravel or sand pits, etc., dying out after about another two years if conditions are stable. Very local southward.
A very attractive plant; the leaves and stems are very glaucous. Fertile plants may vary in size from a few centimeters tall and unbranched, to over 1 meter with many bushy branches. The presence of fresh plants late in the summer suggests that seeds from early-blooming plants may germinate and mature in the same season. Lidén et al. (1997) and Lidén & Zetterlund (1997) note that the floral structure of Capnoides differs from all Corydalis.
