Pachyphragma macrophylla
Apparently it doesn't have one, so let's make one up.

Brassicaceae family. From the Greek pachys (thick) and phragma (a partition) referring to the stout-ribbed septum of the pod. macrophylla = large leaved

Rhizomatous perennial found in moist woods in Turkey. Large glossy round leaves and white cress-like flowers in spring. Semi-evergreen. Best in part shade and fertile, moist, leafy soil. Ht: 8-16 inches, Spread: 24-36 inches Zones 5-9
Leaves are edible.  No known medicinal uses.

suggestions?
