   One of Germany's most common plants that grow close to acres is the worm-seed mustard (Erysimum cheiranthoides). Between May and July, this plant that reaches a height from up to 60 cm produces yellow flowers. Occasionally there is a second bloom in September and October. Shortly after flowering, the worm-seed mustard produces half-ripe and ripe seeds in his characteristic tetragonal pods. Besides those seeds the flowers are highly appreciated goodies for birds if they once got used to their taste.
