Cardamine trifolia


By Andrewr

Cardamine trifolia (Cardamine trifolia)

A relative of our native Lady's Smock. Gently creeps around in shade forming a clump up to twelve inches across and half that tall.
Remember my blog on how plants are named? Trifolia = three leaves

hi Andrew I have a largish bed to plant up that is in mid shade.
Is this a good doer as they say. and does it seed freely? my soil is over chalk so is alkaline, humus content is quite high due to the trees in the area and my own leaf mould.

Sbg - it's growing in shade on quite heavy soil so should appreciate a better diet than I'mgiving it. Never found a seedling yet though
