[efloras.org] Characteristics, Range, Name Information: Boechera repanda is a sexual diploid that is distinguished from all other western North American species by its wide (10-50 mm), repand to coarsely dentate basal leaves. The form recognized as var. greenei appears to be a growth response to ecologically marginal habitats. Boechera repanda occurs sporadically in the Sierra Nevada and Transverse Ranges of California, and barely extends into the Carson Range in western Nevada. Arabis inamoena Greene (1911), not Greene (1908) is an illegitimate name, sometimes found in synonymy with Boechera repanda. (contributed by Mary Ann Machi)
