Hardy perennial herbaceous plants belonging to the Fumitory family, Fumariaceae. They have fernike leaves topped with bright blooms. The plants prefer a light well drained soil in a location with full sun or dappled shade. The grow low and so, are suitable for rock gardens, walls and low borders.

Propagation is done by digging and separating existing plants or by sowing seeds. Seeds should be sown in pots, trays or a bed prepared with a soiless seed starting medium (1 part sphagnum peat moss to 1 part sand is fine). Sow the seed and cover lightly. Maintain temperature at about 70F and keep the medium moist, but not soggy. When seedlings reach 2 inches in height, transplant to larger containers or, if outdoor temperatures remain above 55F, you may set the transplants in an outdoor prepared area. Seeds may also be planted directly outdoors in the spring.
