The cotyledons of bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta) are more
or less round. The club shaped foliage is evident on the first
true leaves . As a frame of reference for size, the yellow balls
in this picture are Osmocote fertilizer prills.
These bittercress seedlings are germinating in large numbers on
the gravel floor of a hoophouse. The first true leaves of bittercress
are simple, while subsequent leaves are generally pinnately compound.
This image is similar to the one above, but with a common house
key to serve as a reference to size.
