Size 8"

Ever since growing and admiring draba aizoides, I've wanted to try other species in the genus. When trading for seed of this one with an Irish trading partner a number of years ago, I eagerly asked if this was a nice one. She responded along the lines of "Oh no, this is a weedy little bugger", and I guess she's right - far from the tightly cropped miniature charm of the yellow whitlow-grass, this one has decent-looking but not particularly special evergreen rosettes, with raggedy-looking flowerstalks gawking up in spring. Up close, the flowers are certainly charming - but from human height, the charm is easily missed. Still, I haven't had the heart to remove them - my early experiments in seed-starting are still dear to me.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
