Cardamine californica

Thanks Nhu, it never occurred to me to think a Jepson Manual would be
online!  From the page, it looks like we are too high for it to grow wild,
but I will check with local, federal botanist to see if they have seen any.

Thanks for offering to keep your eye out, I can see you out there with pods
firing at you :)  

I will post what I find out.

Hi Collen,

The Jepson Manual has a range map.…

This species grows from the coast to the Sierra Nevada so if you can find
high elevation form, it probably will be more hardy.

I'll have to keep an eye out for seeds, but after all, it is Cardamine and
the pods explode.
