Plants of New Jersey # 17 Pale Corydalis

Pale Corydalis (Capnoides sempervirens)

Welcome! Today we are going to discuss Pale Corydalis (Capnoides sempervirens). Pale Corydalis is a perennial native plant and belongs to the Bleeding-Heart family of plants. The plant is found in dry-mesic (moist) forest environments but I generally have always seen them growing out of rock crevices. The plant is found in areas of disturbance, especially areas after a fire has occurred and diminishes in numbers once enough time has passed following the disturbance.  Plants you might find growing near Pale Corydalis are Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) among others.
