ⓘ Draba carnosula

Draba carnosula is a rare species of flowering plant in the mustard family known by the common name Mt. Eddy draba. It is endemic to the Klamath Mountains of far northern California, where it is known from fewer than twenty occurrences at Mount Eddy and other peaks in the range. This is a perennial herb forming small clumps in serpentine outcrops. The leaves are located at the base of the plant, each an oval shape under a centimeter long. They are mostly hairless, except for long hairs along the edges. The erect inflorescence bears fewer than 10 yellow mustardlike flowers. The fruit is a lance-shaped silique one or two centimeters long, containing several winged seeds.
