regarding Corydalis meifolia: 1 very high res. image.
here I’m sharing images of Corydalis, species seems meifoliato me, however, I’ve never seen Corydalis in this shade. kindly have a look.

How interesting.
Incredible photo!
Those flowers are amazing.
So strong and upright, full of flowers.
They are ribbed/ridged/puckered and appear to have glandular hairs.
Leaves are so blue.
In UK we have Corydalis with white flowers but nothing like this beauty.
Hope you find accurate id.

Flower color ok ?

Had a look at Corydalis meifolia. Surely not a match?
Mystery flowers are so different from all other Corydalis
Most Corydalis have long thin spurs.
Mystery flower spurs are enormous, wide and fat.
This is fascinating.

Only  Three subgenera and ca. 465 species: mainly N temperate
Only 135 pages of detail on Harvard Uni PDF file!

Looks somewhat similar to images at Corydalis violacea (Prain) Pusalkar & D.K.Singh

But colour looks different. 
May confirm or suggest suitable id pl. 

Yes, it is C. meifolia. I had seen this species in 6-7 different colours. But this is a new colour for me as well.
