I have been posting on multiple plant identification boards trying to find what this plant is but absolutely none of the people I ask seem to have an answer. You guys are my last hope!

As usual, found in Fremont county, Colorado, a couple weeks ago. It has classic mustard flowers about 1mm in diameter, and the entire aboveground plant was about 10 inches from the dirt.

Hmmm, maybe something in the genus Descurainia? Maybe D. sophia?

I like the leaves on that one!

Reminds me of a tansy or yarrow almost!

One of their common names appears to be tansy mustard, so you're not alone in thinking that!

They're all over my yard (actually covering a large area of Fremont), so feel free to pick a few up if you're ever here! :lol:
