This wild native mustard boasts nutritious leaves, similar to wild arugula, and sturdy taproots with a peppery kick. Additionally, yellow rocket serves as a vital food source for various butterfly species, such as the dwindling large marble butterfly (Euchloe ausonides). In our meadows, the cheerful spring-blooming plant reaches a height of about 18 inches and thrives in damp, sunny spots, including wet gravel areas and wet seeps on rocky ground. Unlike its European counterparts, American yellow rocket is not invasive and is a biennial or short-lived perennial. It is naturally found across the northern and western regions of the continent, from Arizona to Alaska, and from the Pacific coast to the northern Atlantic seaboard. This plant provides excellent food for both wildlife and humans and adds colorful contrast to the spring landscape. Contains approximately 400+ Seeds (0.6 grams).
