and if it's a bittercress it's likely to be edible, too! a bit like watercress - except the leaves are so small and it flowers so quickly. no air miles salad!
... but the stems are flexuous and hairy, so Cardamine flexuosa.
Thanks for your help, lavateraguy. I've counted the stamens and there are six. Does this confirm it as wavy? And what does it help distinguish it from?
One other question: what does 'flexuous' mean?
... 6 stamens indicates C. flexuosa (Poland is a little less certain).
Nearly all crucifers have 6 stamens (one set of 4 and 1 set of 2). The two exceptions that I recall are Cardamine hirsuta (hairy bitter cress) and Coronopus didymus (lesser swine cress). Cardamine hirsuta and Cardamine flexuosa are difficult for novices (and for people quite a way up the experience scale) to distinguish. The presence of 4 or 5 (rarely 6) stamens in Cardamine hirsuta distinguishes it from Cardamine flexuosa with 6. A hazard is the possibility that stamens have been lost somehow, leading you to mistake C. flexuosa for C. hirsuta.
Flexuous is botanical jargon for wavy.
Thanks a useful comparison requiring some thought
