Cardamine heptaphylla Helen Myers
Product Details
A very attractive relation to the garden weed (Bittercress) in every respect although it is unfortunate that it does not spread quite as quickly. Foliage rises in early spring around late March, as crooks which slowly unfurl to reveal the flower buds as well as the leaves. The leaves are composed of 5 leaflets aranged like fingers around a central point, colour is rich green. Flowers are held in loose clusters above the foliage, each is around 1 cm wide and is clean white in colour.

This was collected by Michael Myers and named after his wife Helen
