Slender draba, slender whitlow-grass
From the Pacific states to the Rocky Mountains
Rocky places, disturbed ground, meadows, streambanks, pine forests, from 3,000 to 12,000 feet
Obovate, up to 1.2 inches long, with entire, ciliate margins
Leaves of draba albertina are mostly basal, and stalked, though there may also be a few sessile leaves along the stem. Stems are moderately to sparsely covered by unbranched hairs towards the base, becoming glabrous higher up, while the leaves also have a covering of simple hairs on the upper surfaces; on the lower surfaces, hairs are divided, into up to four branches.
The inflorescence is a narrow, elongated, bractless cluster of up to 30 heads, attached by hairless pedicels. Sepals are yellow-green, and may have a few unbranched white hairs along the margins. Petals are yellow, and just a little longer than the sepals. Pedicels are spreading or ascending at the fruiting stage.
