Cardamine waldsteinii

Bittercress, Toothwort


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
One of those spring ephemerals we totally groove on. This tuberous Toothwort is native to the woodlands of the former Yugoslavia so current geography is from Bosnia through Croatia and into stable Austria. This will form a little colony but is not annoying in the least and is so delightful with its sizable white flowers in March. This will go summer dormant so no need to call when that happens.
