Creeping Yellowcress isn’t too hard to identify. After you determine that it is one of the yellow cresses, just note that the flowers are larger than the other cresses, the plants are found in wet areas, and it creeps along the ground.
It is not native to North America. It is more associated with disturbed areas. Since people do most of the disturbing of areas, this plant has followed people around the world for a long time and it’s hard to know exactly where it’s native range, some suggest the broadleaf forest belt of Europe.
