Plant of the week 9/11/15

I’ve decided that while I’m studying and don’t have time for long reflective posts, I can still post pictures of baby mustards.

This cutie is Caulanthus coulteri, a species in the same tribe (a level of classification including more species than a genus but fewer than a family) as the plants I posted last week. Its common name is Coulter’s wild cabbage, and it is found in dry habitats such as the Mojave desert. It’s in its basal rosette stage in this image, but eventually it will grow bolt, growing a long stem and purple flowers similar to the Streptanthus from last week.
