I don't manage to find a match, the shape of the flowers do look like from Rocket Salad (Eruca vesicaria) but color and the leaves don't match.. Rolling my eyes.

Thanks Chelle! Smiling
I also thought White Mustard because of the leaves but the shape of the flower petals don't really match mine..

I kind of figured that you'd likely checked that one already, but it was worth a shot. Smiling

I seems that the Brassicaceae family crosses very easily, so mine might be one of these natural unnameable hybrids.. Rolling my eyes.

Brassica napus or Oilseed Rape comes close ..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapeseed

http://www.dgsgardening.btinternet.co.uk/rape.htm

It's difficult to find many photos which show it with leaves and flowers which look the same, maybe it's variable?

Thanks Janet, yes Brassica napus does look close, but I still don't feel that the flowers are an exact match, apart from having longer flower petals and having a narrower base, I also do see subtle veins I don't see in the flowers of the Oilseed Rape..

I tip my hat to you.

I found it by searching Brassica napus which came up on the Missouri plants site, then I looked at all the flowers in the 'yellow' group where I found it! Green Grin!

Thumbs up


I once found the best (identifying) picture of a tree on an edibles website...I think it might have been a Beech tree. You just follow the breadcrumb trail, sometimes. Big Grin
