Lepidium alyssoides Gray var. alyssoides
Lepidium montanum Nuttall var. alyssoides (Gray) M.E. Jones
Lepidium alyssoides is found in washes and canyons. The flower clusters are at the
ends of branches, with long-pediceled silicles below individually attached to the stem.
The length of stem taken up by the silicles relative to the flower cluster increases
as the season progresses.
