About Cutleaf Thelypody (Thelypodium laciniatum) 0 Nurseries Carry This Plant Thelypodium laciniatum is a species of flowering plant in the mustard family known by the common name cutleaf thelypody.

Thelypodium laciniatum is a biennial herb producing many erect stems, sometimes exceeding one meter in height. The stems are hairless, solid, and often waxy in texture. The thick green basal leaves have blades divided into several lance-shaped lobes or segments; leaves higher on the plant are smaller and less divided.
