Draba verna

Draba verna  (spring whitlow grass) is a small introduced flower that is currently blooming in profusion in open, disturbed sites. The flowers have four, white, deeply divided petals arranged in a terminal cluster that elongates with age. The leaves are a basal rosette. The fruit is a pod-like silicle. These spring whitlow grass plants are growing in one of our pastures (Lookout CA, Modoc County).
