General Description

Herbs annual, (3-)6-45(-60) cm tall. Stems erect to ascending, simple or branched a little above base, densely pubescent with a mixture of simple (to 1.3 mm), forked, and stalked or subsessile stellate trichomes, glabrous from proximal flower to apex. Basal leaves rosulate, often persistent through flowering or fruiting; petiole obsolete; leaf blade oblong-obovate or oblanceolate, (0.4-)1-3.5(-5) × (0.2-)0.5-1.5(-2) cm, sparsely or densely pubescent with stalked, forked and stellate trichomes with simple rays, base cuneate, margin dentate or denticulate, rarely subentire, apex obtuse. Cauline leaves (2 or)3-12(-15), sessile; leaf blade broadly ovate to oblong, (0.2-)0.5-1.8(-2.7) cm × (1-)3-10(-15) mm, abaxially pubescent as basal leaves; adaxially pubescent with primarily simple trichomes mixed with fewer forked ones, base cuneate to rounded, margin dentate or denticulate, apex obtuse or acute. Racemes (15-)25-60(-90)-flowered, ebracteate, elongated slightly or considerably in fruit. Fruiting pedicels 0.7-2.5(-3) cm, divaricate, straight, glabrous, filiform, longer than fruits. Sepals ovate, (0.7-)0.9-1.6 × 0.5-1 mm, suberect, abaxially sparsely pubescent with simple trichomes, base of lateral pair not saccate, margin not membranous. Petals yellow, spatulate, (1.2-)1.7-2.2(-2.5) × (0.4-)0.6-1 mm, apex emarginate; claw absent. Filaments (0.9-)1-1.7(-2) mm; anthers broadly ovate to subreniform, 0.1-0.2 mm. Ovules (30-)36-60(-72) per ovary. Fruit oblong or elliptic, (3-)5-8(-10) × 1.5-2.5 mm, slightly latiseptate, not twisted; valves glabrous or puberulent with simple, antrorse trichomes 0.05-0.2 mm, base and apex obtuse, often with a distinct midvein and anastomosing lateral veins; style obsolete, rarely to 0.1 mm. Seeds reddish brown, ovate, 0.5-0.7(-0.8) × 0.3-0.4(-0.5) mm. Fl. and fr. Mar-Jun. 2n = 16.

Annuals; not scapose. Stems unbranched or branched proximally, (0.3-)0.6-4.5(-6) dm, densely pubescent proximally, glabrous distally, trichomes simple, 0.5-1.3 mm, and stalked, 2-4-rayed, 0.1-0.5 mm. Basal leaves rosulate or not, petiolate; petiole ciliate throughout; blade oblong-obovate or oblanceolate, (0.4-)1-3.5(-5) cm × (2-)5-15(-20) mm, margins usually dentate to denticulate, rarely subentire, surfaces sparsely to densely pubescent with stalked, 2- or 3-rayed, and cruciform trichomes, 0.1-0.5 mm. Cauline leaves 4-12(-15); sessile; blade broadly ovate to oblong, margins dentate or denticulate, surfaces pubescent, abaxially as basal, adaxially with primarily simple, and 2- or 3-rayed trichomes. Racemes (10-)18-60(-92)-flowered, ebracteate, considerably elongated in fruit; rachis not flexuous (straight), glabrous. Fruiting pedicels divaricate, straight, 7-28 (-35) mm [(1.5-)2-7 times longer than fruit], glabrous. Flowers: sepals ovate, (0.7-)0.9-1.6 mm, sparsely pubescent, (trichomes simple); petals yellow, spatulate to oblanceolate, (1.2-)1.7-2.2(-2.5) × (0.4-)0.6-1 mm, (deeply notched); anthers broadly ovate to subreniform, 0.1-0.2 mm. Fruits oblong to elliptic or, rarely, oblong-oblanceolate, plane, slightly flattened, (3-)5-8 (-10) × 1.5-2.5 mm; valves glabrous or puberulent, trichomes simple, antrorse, 0.05-0.2 mm; ovules (30-) 36-60(-72) per ovary; style 0.01-0.1 mm. Seeds ovoid, 0.5-0.7(-0.8) × 0.3-0.4(-0.5) mm. 2n = 16.

"Annual or winter-annual to 3 dm; basal lvs lance-ovate to oval, elliptic, or obovate, 1–2.5 cm; cauline lvs similar, few to several, all below the middle of the stem, often dentate, pubescent with simple and branched hairs; pet yellow, turning white in age, 2 mm; mature raceme loose and elongate, to 2 dm, glabrous, with widely spreading or ascending glabrous pedicels to 3 cm; frs ascending to erect, glabrous or hirsutulous, linear-oblong, 5–10 mm; 2n=16. Dry soil, prairies, and hillsides; widespread in Eurasia and much of w. N. Amer., extending e. to Lake Superior and locally in Mich. and sw. Que. (D. lutea)"
