NYBG April Flowers 1

Some flowers I knew the names of most but others I could not find. If my friends here at WordPress know the missing name of the one at the end, please let me know. Thank you to those who helped me name these. I love learning what they are.

    We have native Corydalis species, which resemble C. cava but don’t look a thing like the red flowers. My first thought when I saw the red ones was Larkspur of some sort: perhaps a dwarf version. The spurs on the blooms are hard to miss. I’m pretty sure your first “???” is Allegheny spurge The leaves suggest that plant as well as the blooms.

        The white flower suggested the mustard family, so I went looking. You might consider the delightfully named “Everygreen candytuft,” or Iberis sempervirens.

    Hi Sherry, the last picture (the red ones) is Corydalis cava, syn. Corydalis bulbosa.
    The Dutch name is HOLWORTEL. 🙂 (= translated in hollow root)

      Oh! Thank you so much. You made my day. Here it is called fumewort or bird-in-a-bush. Now I can add Corydalis to my metadata and keyword list.
