The mystery plant for March 2022 is a summer blooming native perennial that Doug McGrady showed me last July in northern RI. It’s 4-petalled white flowers yield deeply curved drooping pods. The alternating leaves are toothed, downy and narrow at the base. The plant grows 1-3 feet tall in rocky woods. 

It’s. . .
