Seed ripensearly August

Low-growing crucifer. Apparently not hardy in Austria, so hardiness in Pennsylvania appeared to be unlikely as well – but a few plants survived their first winter, and started blooming in early May. Then a couple more lived through the next winter, which was a harsh one. So I'll rate them hardy to zone 6 for now.

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