It has small yellow flowers like other members of the mustard family. The yellow flowers give it another common name:Â “gold-of-pleasure.”
Camelina has been receiving some interest from researchers lately as a potential source of biodiesel and also as a source of oils human consumption. We are likely to be seeing more of it grown in the future.
Does camelina grow where you live?
