This has been blooming for about a week now. Our season is a little mixed up since March usually does not have two weeks of 70 temperatures during the day and lows of 50 at night. This little plant came up in my rock garden and I don't have a name for it. I'm sure it isn't native and probably has gotten mixed up from my move. Can anyone help me out? Sorry for the picture but it was very windy.

Assuming it does have 4 petals(?), it's likely a Draba sp..

Possibly (?) one of the many St. John's Warts? But the plant does not look shrubby enough.

Hmm - nevermind, I believe all the St. John's Warts have 5 petals.

Are you able to get a better picture of the leaves and stem (so the veins on the leaves can be seen)?

Still a Draba. There is a vast number of species and they can be difficult to distinguish.

I agree altagardener is has to be a Draba. That will be good enough for me. Thank you once again for your help :) M
