Canadian rockcress, Drummond's rockcress

Publication: Novon. 13: 389. 2003.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA7: "Arabis drummondii is the correct name for this species in that genus; the epithet stricta has priority in Boechera. This very distinctive species is easily recognized by having basal leaves with branched trichomes, all sessile and 2-rayed (malpighiaceous). It is also the most promiscuous, having formed apomictic hybrids with at least 15 other species of Boechera."
