Hoary cress is a perennial plant commonly one to two feet tall with creeping rootstocks.
This plant originated in Europe. It reproduces by root segments and seed. It is commonly found on disturbed sites along road ways, field edges, and excavations. It is also a widespread weed of grain fields, cultivated fields, meadows and grows particularly well on somewhat salinic soils.
Bloom is in late spring with clusters of white flowers, each flower containing four petals.
Seed pods are heart shaped and contain two brownish seeds.
Leaves are finely toothed. Upper leaves clasp the stem.
