Latin name - Corydalis cava

Corydalis yanhusuo is a species used primarily in Chinese herbal medicine. C. gariana, native to the Himalayas, is used medicinally in India. A related species, Corydalis cava, is used in European herbalism. Another closely related species, is Corydalis canadensis (also called Dicentra canadensis) and known by the common name corydalis or turkey corn, is found in North America. There are other species of Corydalis found throughout the world. Although the names are somewhat confusing, many are used by herbal therapists in similar ways and are included under the umbrella label corydalis.

C. cava is a perennial that grows in shady forests. It is native to southern Europe and has spread throughout the continent. C. cava grows to a height of about 11 in (30 cm). Its flowers range in color from red to yellowish to white, with occasional lilac, brownish-red, or dark blue flowers. The tubers (knobby, fleshy underground stems) are used medicinally. Alternative names for the North American species of corydalis include turkey corn, squirrel corn, and early fumitory.

In Western medicine, the various corydalis species are used to treat shaking and involuntary tremors. They can be used to treat people with Parkinson's disease. Corydalis is also used as a painkiller; a diuretic; a sedative that slows the pulse and depresses the central nervous system; and a tonic that invigorates the circulation. Occasionally it is used to treat mild forms of depression. In fact, the uses of the various corydalis species are surprisingly similar around the world.

Hi Gert,

The pink were spectacular but the white are beautiful too. Once again the colors, details and composition are excellent. Our cacti are beginning to bloom but I would much rather see your lovely flowers.
