Stunning, rich purple flowers in small clusters on stems to 15cm. Glossy leaves, divided into three are sparingly produced. Slowly forms a loose patch in good, drained soil in shade.

A rarely seen species but it is easy to grow in a shady spot, ideally in a woodsy soil but it will be okay in most other soils as long as it isn't waterlogged.  When it is happy, perhaps in rich soil under deciduous trees, it can spread quite quickly but the charming foliage and bright purplish flowers are always welcome in spring.

As with most Cardamine it is early to go dormant, often being deciduous from June until February.  The new growth in late winter/early spring is richly flushed bronzey purple.

From eastern and central Europe.
