Flowering Bird-in-a-Bush (Corydalis solida)
Flowering Bird-in-a-Bush (Corydalis solida)
The English name of this plant is Fumewort. It is native to northern Europe and Asia where it can be found growing in damp, shady habitats. Roger Jones, the Rosary Wildlife Officer, has kindly informed me that according to the 'Flora of Norfolk', this is the only site in the county where Corydalis solida can be seen growing in the wild, although it may have escaped from gardens since the book was published in 1999.

The plant is documented to have been used as a painkiller in Chinese medicine for over 1,000 years. The tuber is anodyne, antibacterial, antispasmodic, hallucinogenic, nervine and sedative and can be used internally as a sedative for insomnia and as a stimulant and painkiller. It is also used for lowering the blood pressure.
