Alkali crucifer (Thelypodium integrifolium), also known as entire-leaved thelypody or foxtail thelypodium, stands out at five feet tall and grows well within moist, salty, and sandy soils. The blooms are small white flower clusters that can be found on top of the plant from mid-summer into fall attracting many pollinators. Leaves are oblong and are layered throughout the stem and bottom portion of the plant. Alkali crucifer can be found within the Red Spring Picnic Area and Calico Basin.
