Weld -

Likes disturbed bare ground, and is something of an "opportunist", if that is an acceptable designation for a plant. Also called Dyer's Rocket, as you can obtain a yellow dye from it.

Thanks for the info. "Disturbed bare ground" describes very well the patch it is growing in, Colt's foot is another plant that seems to thrive in the same area.
