Climbing Corydalis - Ceratocapnos claviculata
Climbing Corydalis is a delicate, pale, much branched climber, with pale cream flowers in a lax raceme of 6 to 8, and with leaves terminating in branched tendrils. It grows up to a metre tall with weak, often pinkish, clambering stems.
It occurs in woodlands or rocky areas, generally on acid soils.
June to September, sometimes earlier.
Annual, very occasionally a perennial.
Fairly widespread but local in most of Britain, and less common in central southern England.
Mostly confined to Charnwood Forest and the north west of Leicestershire where it is local. In the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire it was found in 11 of the 617 tetrads.
