Arabis verna   Spring Rockcress

Arabis verna large plant Arabis verna small

This plant tended to have flowers much the same size but the leaves and stems vary enormously. The plant on the left was large one with leaves several cm long but the one of the right had leaves less than 1 cm in length.

A flowering plant can be less than 1 cm or as much as 12 cm tall. We found this plant both in the Theriso Gorge and amongst the rocks on the mountains near the Omalos plateau.
