Cardamine hirsuta ?, an annual weed in disturbed forests. ID confirmation requested.
Yes .. Common in Himalayas also. C. flexuosa is a more common one here is spreading in Delhi also.
Oh, i have plenty of it in my garden and difficult to get rid of. But i think it tastes a bit bitter. Garlic? no, not at least from my garden.
Know about another crucifer Alliaria petiolata (syn: Sisymbrium alliaria), which has garlic taste/smell and known as garlic mustard. It has large simple leaves, and grows commonly in Western Himalayas.
yes, Alliaria petiolata (syn: Sisymbrium alliaria) germanname: Knoblauchsrauke also occurs in plenty in my garden. I know and have in my garden three garlic smelling plants in my garden. Knoblauchsrauke (Alliaria petiolata), Schnittlauch (Allium schoenoprasum) and Bärlauch (Allium ursinum). Shall upload the fotos in separate mails, now that my computer is working again.

I took this photo yesterday on my phone. This herb like plant is quite common now. Please advise.
Cardamine I hope
Thank you … Could it be Cardamine hirsuta? The attached photo shows spikes on the leaves. Or do we have to see the flowers to be certain?
I agree with your identification and leaves resemble with Cardamine hirsuta

Can some one give references on the geographical distribution of Cardamine hirsuta in India? And any other recent studies on Cardamine hirsuta in India?
Please see page on this species in Flora of India:
Thanks. We also need to get references to some published studies on the geographical distribution in India (& elsewhere) of this plant which can be a alternative model to Arabidopsis thaliana, especially in Indian colleges & schools. Information on any which studies done on C hirsuta, in India too is welcome.

This is the third type of plants, similar to Cardamine, found in Delhi. These plants are smaller, flowering now (9.4.18), growing near but mostly not together with the larger leaved, prostrate ones. These too have leaves with deeply pinnately divided lamina but appear different from those in my second post, flowers with 4 petals, 6 stamens and fruit does not dehisce explosively.
Kindly identify the plant.
Thanks, … Pl. check

This is another Cardamon species (?) that I found in Delhi. Flowers in last week of February, earlier than the one that I posted earlier for identification. You can see both the plants, one with flowers and other still in the vegetative phase (one in my earlier post) in the first picture. This flowering one has erect habit, deeply pinnately dissected lamina, flowers have petals, 6 stamens and fruit does not dehisce explosively.
Kindly identify the plant.
Thank you … I did check Cardamine in efloraofindia site but could not identify the species; it looks like C. hirsuta but the flowers mostly have 6 stamens and not 4.
Flora of Pakistan says Stamens 6, rarely 4 (the outer 2 abortive )
Flora of North America say stamens usually 4, lateral pair often absent, rarely 5 or 6
Flora of China says Stamens 4 and lateral pair often absent, rarely 5 or 6
