    Erysimum decumbens

    No, I haven’t made it up, this is the unlikely name for a bright yellow mountain wallflower Erysimum decumbens, although it sounds more like something that might be consumed at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. ‘Decumbent’ means that the plant trails and then the ends of the stems point upwards.
