Draba sibirica

Draba sibirica

Family brassicaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow (spring)
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well drained soil

Rosette-forming species with yellow flowers held on slender stalks above the leaves. Widely distributed through Eurasia, on rocky slopes. So far, two plantlets survived into a second year: the ones planted in a hypertufa trough. They look much more like the Draba aizoides we used to grow than like photos of the species I found online, so I doubt my plants are properly identified.

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