Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Corydalis grows best in moist, well-drained soils that are alkaline. Adding lime to the soil will help to achieve these conditions. However, C. lutea tends to tolerate drier conditions better than the other species. Though it will grow in full sun with consistent moisture, this plant prefers partial shade.
