Cardamine cordifolia A. Gray[FNA7, HC, HC2]
heart-leaved bittercress, large mountain bittercress, Lyall's bittercress

Publication: Mem. Amer. Acad. Arts, n. s. 4: 8. 1849.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA7: "Cardamine cordifolia is highly variable in leaf morphology, especially in leaf width, depth of the cordate base, and indumentum. This variation occurs throughout the species range and is rather weakly or not at all correlated with geography. In the absence of a detailed biosystematic study over the entire species range, we follow N. H. Holmgren (2005b) in not recognizing any infraspecific taxa, instead of accepting the three rather poorly defined varieties recognized by R. C. Rollins (1993)."
