Rocket Plant Card

Here is my identification card sketch for European Rocket (Cakile maritima), a European species, as the common name suggests.  This plant has a rather interesting history on the California coast, which I won’t go into here, but I can tell you all about it if you really want to know.  Even though it’s non-native, it has naturalized and seems to play nicely with the native species.  I think it’s a nice addition (as far as non-natives go) with its unique leaves and little purple, pink, or white flowers.
