Cardamine douglassii has become one of our new favorite native spring ephemeral plants. Cardamine douglassii emerges in early November for us and remains as flat rosettes of glaucous leaves until mid-February, when it expands into a 1' tall x 18" wide clump of foliage, adorned with flower spikes of mauvy-pink...a true showpiece in the winter woodland garden at the same time as hellebores. For us, Cardamine douglassii is completely dormant by late April. Our offering is an exceptional clone that plantswoman Jan Midgley discovered in Alabama.
