Descurainia sophia (weed) (L.) Webb ex Prantl - (flixweed)
Flixweed is native to Europe and neighbouring regions. It has been introduced into other continents like North America and temperate parts of eastern Asia, often becoming invasive. It grows in disturbed habitats like roadsides or waste areas and is regarded as an important agricultural weed in crops like cereals or rape (canola).
The plant grows to a height of up to 1 m. It has an erect stem and the leaves are double or triple pinnately lobed, often with a blueish tinge.
