Congratulations Ori, your Alpine corydalis is our Spotting of the Day:"We've neglected plants recently, so must share this stunning blue-violet Alpine Corydalis (Corydalis alpestris) as our Spotting of the Day! The genus Corydalis (family Papaveraceae) is mostly distributed to the temperate Northern hemisphere. The flowers of Corydalis alpestris are organized in racemes (clusters attached by short stalks to a central stem as seen here), and are almost horizontal. Did you know? The plant kingdom is the dominant kingdom on Earth in terms of biomass.
