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.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
