|The entire plant, with roots. I planted it in a clamshell.|
I set the plant in a sunny window and kept it watered for a few weeks. It never grew any larger. The flowers shrivelled, and didn't produce seeds; my window seems to be lacking in pollinators.
It looks like one of the cresses; the basal rosette and flowers are like that of the Little Western Bitter-cress, but that one grows from 4 to 18 inches tall. The hairy leaves look like those of Field Pennycress, up to 20 inches tall.
I needed a magnifying glass, or the camera lens, to appreciate the flowers.
|White, pink, and yellow bouquet.|
|Ant-level view. Small ant, of course.|
And to think that I must have stepped on hundreds of these flowers walking across the field!
