Brassicacae Week: Sisymbrium officinale from Kashmir: The initial wrong identificatin of this plant rather proved good, as it helped me to locate an interesting plant from here in California. When I visited Kashmir this time in May after a gap of more than 30 years, I noticed a weed very common along the roadsides in Harwan, the area of my Ph.D. study, and a few other places in Kashmir, perhaps I had not seen previously. The plant was very distinct in its short appressed fruits and small yellow flowers, and nearly horizontal branches. I thought it to be Hirschfeldia incana, an American similar looking species. It was only when … suggested that we finally identified it as Sisymbrium officinale which differs from former in smaller flowers, different leaves and fruits different in structure.  
Sisymbrium officinale (Linn.) scop., Fl. Carn. 2: 26. 1772.
Syn: Erysimum officinale Linn.
