Boechera suffrutescens (S. Watson) Dorn[FNA7, HC2]
woody rockcress

Publication: Brittonia. 55: 3. 2003.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA7: "Boechera suffrutescens is recognizable by its prominently suffrutescent habit and wide (greater than 3 mm), reflexed fruits. Both sexual and apomictic collections are known; further study is needed to determine whether they truly are conspecific. The taxon previously known as Arabis suffrutescens var. horizontalis appears to be of hybrid origin; it is treated here as a distinct species (see M. D. Windham and I. A. Al-Shehbaz 2007 for detailed comparison)."
