Cardamine maxima S. Taylor

Dentaria maxima of Michigan Flora.

Rich deciduous forests, often along streams.

Our other two species of toothwort, C. concatenata and C. diphylla, are common and variable, although quite distinct in their normal appearance. Cardamine maxima has an aspect strongly suggesting that it is of hybrid origin.
