Cutleaf Toothwort - Cardamine concatenata (Spring Ephemeral)

Cutleaf Toothwort is one of the earlier spring wildflowers. The foliage turns yellow and fades away by the end of spring. The plant typically grows in dappled sunlight and prefers moist, rich loamy soil with decaying leaves. Other names include: Five-parted Toothwort, Pepper Root. Leaves are deeply cleft. Botanists have recently placed this plant into the genus Cardamine instead of the former Dentaria where it was called Dentaria laciniata.
