Strawberry Death

Check in the compost for Vine weevil grubs. They eat the roots of Strawberries. Otherwise it sounds like you may have over watered it in winter when it was dormant.

Basically anywhere where the flowers are not hit by the sun when there is frost on them.

Topsoil

At that depth you would need 2.25 cubic metres of dressing. Though as said, that depth would kill the grass.

I.D. please

C. flexuosa is always blue or blue and white, never purple or pink. It is also does not grow from a corm, rather it has scaly roots which is what makes it easy to propagate from division. Also it grows over Winter then dies down in mid-summer and starts again in autumn. C. solida ( and others) grow from corms. They begin in Spring, flower and set seed and have disappeared by early summer. They are a bit like Crocus and Snowdrops in that respect.

Sorry Puncdoc, but No 5 is Corydalis solida. Flowers and foliage are different with C. flexuosa. I have a large number of C. solida in all sorts of colours, but there a dozens and dozens more I would like to get, but the prices...........sheesh!

Sorry, I cannot find a decent picture of any of my solida to show you.

Is it one of the Brunnera? or perhaps Omphalodes?

Interesting. These are all forms of Anemone coronaria which are fairly easy to come by, but usually in mixed colours.
