To aid in identifying this plant

Some photos of individual plants, to help you identify it when you come across it.
Here is a close-up look at the flowers of garlic mustard.


Another close-up shows how seeds start forming almost immediately. 

These seeds mature and get dispersed early in the season. The new plants grow all year in a rosette form, gathering energy in their roots to be able to shoot up their stalk early the next spring (known as "bolting", which is a good term to describe what they do and how fast they grow).

Garlic Mustard remains green and photosynthesizes all winter! This gives it an enormous head start in the spring over other plants.
