Brief Summary

Read full entry


This plant is considered to be biennial or, sometimes, a short-lived perennial. Plants germinate in spring and spend at least one season in a vegetative state before flowering. Tower mustard can produce large quantities of seed which seem to be capable of lying dormant in the soil for years before germinating. This has led to appearances of the plant on sites after long periods of absence.
