Cardamine quinquefolia, never had as many flowers as this in all the years it's been here.

looks like that a nice plant, is a woodland one?

Ooh, lovely. You've reminded me to take a walk along a nearby stream, the field's quite boggy and wild cardamines thrive there. No chance of growing them in my garden, the soil's like dust.

without being caught could gather some off the wild plant and mimic its growing conditions

Haven't seen any sign ofmy C. pratensis this year figrat but I'm sure it will be back. We're too dry for a reliable display. A shade plant without doubt hollie hock though may cope with a bit of sun if it had anough moisture.

I think propagation's quite easy from leaf cuttings, so that's minimal disruption to the plant, and I do have a tiny pond, so maybe I'll try that Derek.

What else did will do well this year beause of last year's wet weather?

Here's a couple for your starter for ten...camellias, most spring flowering bulbs
