Cut-Leaved Toothwort

This flower is also catagorized in the mustard family. The petals are usually white or light pink with harsh three segmented leaves with tooth like segements. These can grow 8-15 inches in its lifetime. Doctors have concluded that this plant would cure toothaches and that is how it got the name and also because the root is white and tooth like in appearance.
