    Please can someone give a name to this plant. About 10-50 cm tall, blooming in June in limestone on Vancouver Island. Thank you.

    Very much alike. What bothers me, however, basal leaves look too dentate compared to Arabidopsis. Could be some close species or just some Arabidopsis variety. To be sure, check that the stem leaves are sessile and NOT auriculate. Here are examples of two leaves - from A. thaliana (not auriculate) and from Boechera (auriculate, with small extensions at the base).

    Thank you, saltcedar and Mr. Zharkikh. I believe Arabidopsis thaliana is correct. The stem leaves appear to me to be not auriculate.
