(aka: Cardamine concatenata) Dentaria laciniata 'Priceless' is a 2021 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a Louisiana toothwort selection, shared by native plant enthusiasts Jack and Ella Price. Dentaria 'Priceless' has been an outstanding performer in our garden since 2003, and we finally have enough to share. The lacy foliage of this widespread (Canada south to Florida) North American native spring ephemeral, emerges in late winter to 10" tall, and topped from mid-February into early April (NC) with clusters of small blush pink pendant bells. Dentaria laciniata spreads via short underground rhizomes to make a 3' wide patch after 15 years. Slightly moist to slightly dry, and near neutral pH soils are best.
