Brassica tournefortii, the desert Mustard

Brassica tournefortii has yellow flowers but is not shiny as other mustard plants. It is a spreading annual herb with long stems up to 100 centimeters (40 inches) in length. The flora is highly adapted and sprouts after a shower of rain. The yellow flowers are an attraction for pollinators, whisps, bees, birds, and other animals. It provides food for camels and other livestock in the desert. It is also edible for humans.
