(Map updated: March 2008)
 

This native annual is very common in bare ground, on roadsides, dumps, edges of fields and many other places. The branches are set at a wide angle to the main shoot and carry tiny yellow flowers which are followed by cylindrical fruits pressed closely to the stem.

All names: Sisymbrium officinale (L.) Scop.
