Hoary Alyssum - Berteroa incana

Hoary Alyssum is generally found on roadsides and in waste areas and is a member of the Mustard family but alien to North America.

After flowering, the flattened seedpods are held close to the stem. It is an annual but if climatatic conditions are favourable, it may sometimes be a short-lived perennial.
It seldom grows more than a metre. The entire plant is covered with star-shaped hairs; the leaves are elliptic and hold close to the stem. Flowers are white with deeply notched petals.
