This American wildflower is not often see here in the UK but it is a superb Cardimine which forms a good carpet of deeply divided foliage, with spikes of pure white flowers held high in the spring. After flowering it dies back to its root and lies dormant until the following spring.
Wonderful when planted under trees or shrubs where it will come into flower before the new trees come into leaf. Prefers dappled shade, but will tolerate full shade or full sun provided the soil doesn't get too dry when the plant is in leaf.
Height and spread: 25cm x 70cm
