Corydalis sempervirens, commonly known as pale corydalis or rock harlequin, is a species of flowering plant in the Papaveraceae family. It is native to eastern North America, particularly the Appalachian Mountains and surrounding regions, where it grows in rocky woodlands, slopes, and cliffs.

Pale corydalis is a herbaceous perennial plant that typically reaches heights of 30 to 60 centimeters (12 to 24 inches). It forms clumps of finely divided, fern-like foliage that remain green throughout the year, giving the plant its specific epithet "sempervirens," which means "evergreen."

The plant produces clusters of delicate, tubular flowers that vary in color from pale yellow to cream or white, often with a tinge of pink. The flowers bloom from late spring to early summer and are borne on slender, wiry stems above the foliage.

Corydalis sempervirens is valued for its ornamental beauty and is sometimes cultivated in gardens for its attractive foliage and charming flowers. It is especially well-suited to rock gardens, woodland gardens, or other naturalistic settings where it can thrive in well-drained, slightly acidic soil and partial shade.

In addition to its ornamental value, pale corydalis has a long history of medicinal use in traditional herbal medicine. It was used by Indigenous peoples and early settlers for various purposes, including the treatment of pain, inflammation, and respiratory conditions. However, it's essential to note that Corydalis species contain toxic alkaloids and should be used with caution and under the guidance of a knowledgeable herbalist or healthcare provider.

Overall, Corydalis sempervirens is a charming and versatile plant that adds a touch of elegance to natural landscapes and gardens, while also providing habitat and food for pollinators such as butterflies and bees.
