Arabis scabra   Bristol Rock-cress RRR DD N

Arabis scabra whole Arabis scabra close

This creamy-white crucifer has quite distinctive basal rosette of dark green leaves which appear to be both shiny and roughly hairy - so it doesn't look much like a typical Arabis. The plant doesn't usually have many flowers like A. caucasica for instance and the flower stalks (pedicels) are long.

The only sites for this plant in the British Isles are around the Bristol Avon Gorge area.
