“Broad Leaved Tooothwort - Cardamine piphylla

Cardamine piphylla

With rainy days, busy workdays, as well as event filled weekends, I seem to have missed several days of spring blossoms. Despite this, the ‘next wave’ of blossoms is now starting to show. These tend to be primarily white flowers, starting with trilliums, which are well advanced as I write this.

These Toothworts are plentiful, yet I seem to have overlooked them in previous years, unless this is an exceptional cycle for them?

I’ve made a point, since photographing wildflowers, to research the names and habits of the flowers I photograph as well as to expand my ability to visually identify them. Fortunately, I have lots of books and online resources available, though I’m finding many books have sadly inadequate photos to help me identify the plants. I’ve also joined a local group of amateur field botanists, where I can post photos and ask for help in identification and hopefully, be able to provide good photos to the group for their own enjoyment.

  1. I wish all bloggers would make this point of trying to find the names before uploading the photos. Sometimes it’s not easy, but asking readers “What’s this?” is quite acceptable.

  2. I like that you name them. It’s fun to learn about them. Thanks for sharing it with us. 😊
