This just showed up in my front garden bed. It either self seeded, or was perhaps a piggy-back from a plant I bought from a native nursery (came up in approximately the same spot that my native died, but definitely not the intended plant). Any ideas of ID?

Whole plant:
Thumb of 2017-04-13/Bonehead/6482f4

Two distinctly different types of leaves:
Thumb of 2017-04-13/Bonehead/d9385e

Pretty little white flower with a tint of pinky/lilac:

Maybe a variety of Cardamine? Milkmaids (Cardamine californica)

Possibly C. californica var. integrifolia? : https://www.pnwflowers.com/flo...

I thought about cardamine because of the 3 leaves, and I used to have a cardamine in this general area. Here's the cardamine I used to have, which doesn't appear to be this plant:


I also see that my cardamine trifolia may be mislabeled and need to post that on the ID forum to clarify. My photo looks much different than Calif Sue's, the only two in our database. I'll start a new thread on that.

Now I have possibly two cardamines to figure out, my dead one and my living one...

I will wait on more input on this particular ID, it doesn't quite look like a match to me. But, plants can vary quite a bit.

Cardamine californica fits well.

Yes, I will go with that. Always nice to have a name to every plant, I like to track bloom time, where they are at, etc.
