Okay, so what I grew from the seed I thought was Thlaspi montanum is in fact something different. My notes for T. montanum state "12-inch-tall flower stalks rise in summer from a 4-inch rosette of gray-green foliage. Rock garden plant.". In fact, the plant is blooming now (late March), with flowers held tight to the rosette of foliage. I'll be looking for an identification on this one.

|Helen Poirier||Mar 21, 2010||Hi Rob, did you ever get your thlaspi identified?
I too grew some thlaspi montana seeds last year and have the same mounded plant as your picture. It was covered in snow up until a few days ago and is now starting to flower. Today is 21st March.
I haven't made any further progress on ID; it did not return in our garden for a third season.
