Biology

This plant is a spring-flowering species, recorded as growing in pasture, scree, walls and in quarries. It grows as an annual and can over-winter. The flowers appear in April and May. It does not disperse its seeds very effectively, and in order to germinate successfully, the seeds need to land on recently disturbed ground. It also prefers conditions where the young plants are not over-shadowed by taller vegetation.
