- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 1,042 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Tribe Camelineae.
Camelina is a genus within the flowering plant family Brassicaceae. One species, Camelina sativa, is a historic and potentially important oil plant. [more]
The genus Capsella belongs to the Mustard family Brassicaceae. The most common species is Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris). [more]
The genus Erysimum (wallflowers) includes more than 220 species, both popular garden plants and many wild forms. They are small, annual, short-lived perennial herbs or sub-shrubs, reaching 10-130 cm tall, with bright yellow to red or pink flowers produced throughout the spring and summer. One species, Erysimum semperflorens, native to Morocco and Algeria, has white flowers. Wallflowers have t-shaped trichomes. [more]
Herbs annual. Trichomes short-stalked, forked or substellate, mixed on stem with simple ones. Stems erect, simple basally, branched above. Basal leaves shortly petiolate, not rosulate, simple, entire or dentate. Cauline leaves sessile, sagittate or auriculate, entire or denticulate. Racemes ebracteate, elongated considerably in fruit. Fruiting pedicels slender, divaricate. Sepals oblong, erect, base of lateral pair not saccate. Petals yellow, longer than sepals; blade spatulate, apex obtuse. Stamens 6, slightly tetradynamous; filaments not dilated at base; anthers ovate, obtuse at apex. Nectar glands 2 or 4; median glands absent; lateral glands semiannular or 1 on each side of lateral stamen. Ovules 2-4 per ovary. Fruit indehiscent, nutletlike silicles, compressed globose or sublenticular, 1-seeded, shortly stipitate, readily detached from pedicel at maturity; valves woody, prominently reticulate; replum rounded, obscured by valve margin; septum complete, membranous; style less than 1 mm, cylindric, readily caducous at fruit maturity; stigma capitate, entire. Seeds wingless, ovoid, plump; seed coat minutely reticulate, not mucilaginous when wetted; cotyledons incumbent. [more]
At least 17 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Stenopetalum.
