Stinking wall rocket. A. Base of annual plant.
Flowers & Fruit: Flowers like Wild mustard but lighter lemon yellow and on stalks 1-1.5cm (2/5-3/5in.) long; pods 2-3.5cm (4/5-1½in.) long with a very short beak but not developing a short stipe (see Narrow-leaved wall-rocket); flower stalks spreading at an angle from the stem. The whole plant has a distinctly unpleasant odour, somewhat resembling that of rotting turnips. Flowers from May to September.
Similar Species: It is distinguished by its leaves being mostly clustered near the base, the upper part of its stem being usually more or less branched and spreading, its lemon yellow flowers followed by short seedpods, and the very unpleasant odour from all parts of the plant.
