New flower species

Meet whitlow-grass (Draba cuneifolia), a new species in our Wildscape but not new to me. I found and identified this plant on our property northwest of town in March 2012 (see "Surveying our rural land"). Whit-low-grass is tiny and sweet. I don't remember seeing it before. Another early bloomer!

What a sweet white flower. I love all the deep hues of Spring but there is something about a white blossom that always grabs me. I note it is a form of mustard so do these spread easily?I'd never heard of it before but I'd sure be happy to see these popping up in my spaces.
