Introduced, cool-season, annual, slender, sparsely hairy herb, to 25 cm tall. Lower leaves are pinnate, with 3-7 ovate to circular and sparsely hairy leaflets. Flowerheads are racemes of tiny (about 4 mm long) flowers that have 4 white petals and 4 yellow stamens. Fruits are erect, slender siliquas to 25 mm long. Flowering is from late winter to early summer. A native of Europe, it is a minor weed of moist and often disturbed situations, such as gardens, roadsides, cultivation and pastures. Although palatable to stock, it of little importance for grazing as it produces very little bulk. It is tolerant of grazing; mostly occurring where pastures are closely grazed.
