Well John, I have been so happy to receive so many good plants from the years from you that I am happy that I was able to restore 'David Valentine' to your care, and to see that it is thriving!

John, I too have only one plant of Corydalis malkensis in spite of the many statements I've read that "it seeds all over the place". Having said that I have also only one plant of Erythronium tolumnensis, so you must be doing something right!

At the time of  raising  Corydalis 'Craigton Red' we weren't growing any C. cava, John.

Craigton Red

I have now looked at the tubers of 'Craigton Red' and they look like typical C. solida to me (i.e. 'solid'!, hence, presumably, the name). This bears Maggi out. However, while shifting one of my own presumed hybrids to a new bed (not to be recommended really, I have mangled two now) one did seem to have a tuber shape intermediate between C. solida and C. cava.
