ⓘ Draba breweri

Draba breweri is a species of flowering plant in the mustard family known by the common names cushion draba, Brewers draba, and Brewers Whitlow grass. With Draba cana now considered a variety of this species, it is distributed throughout parts of northern and western North America, including much of Canada and the western United States. The less widespread var. breweri is limited to mountainous California and western Nevada.

It is a perennial herb that forms small bushes in the rocky mountain areas. A large part of the leaves are in a patch at the base of the stems, slightly higher on the stems. They are oval in shape and hairy, branching, with every white hair in the shape of a star. The erect inflorescence bears several white mustardlike flowers. The fruit is a twisted, hairy, lance-shaped silique no more than an inch.
