Flowers are white or creamy white, but never bright yellow.

I cannot recommend this plant for serious gardenists, but Mouse ear Cress are pretty when there are lot's of them.

Arabidopsis thaliana is "a banana fly" for scientific biological recearch.

This plant is best known as the subject of intense genetic study, and is one of the few species of which the entire genome has been sequenced (via a plant equivalent of the Human Genome Project). Native to Europe but naturalized in most of the United States; not grown ornamentally, rarely an obnoxious weed.
