Western Wildflower Identification

wooleyboogerApril 11, 2012

Greetings - I am having difficulty identifying this wildflower in the photos even after looking through the online databases... can anyone out there point me in the right direction on identifying this specie? Here are a few more specifics:

- location is northern Arizona (Yavapai County)

- elevation is about 5000 ft in the Pinyon-Juniper uplands

- photo was taken April 8

It looks like a crucifer to me but really need a close up of the flowers. Check the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Brassiaceae of the southwest

Thanks for the lead T-man ... following the leads you provided, I have identified it as a chambers twinpod (Physaria chambersii)
