Cardamine plumieri   Ivy-leaved Bittercress

Cardamine plumieri whole Cardamine plumieri whole

Near the clearing in the forest where we enjoyed our Naturetrek lunch there were some obvious Bittercress type plants. Closer inspection showed long seed pods and distinctive leaves which lead to the identification of this as Ivy-leaved Bittercress. However C. plumieri isn't supposed to grow this far south in Italy according to one source of information on the Italian flora so perhaps it's a sub species.
