This is the introduced beach weed Cakile maritima, Sea Rocket. Very common on our beaches.

The only way to tell Cakile maritima and Cakile edentula apart is from photos with rioe (brown) seed cases. See the notes on either species for more information,

I am confident of C. maritima, as C. edentula has disappeared from the coast and been replaced by the former species (see Cunninghamia 13: 291–294 (2013).

Checked out the paper. Interesting, and good to know I can stop worrying about whether there are ripe fruits present or not. I've been keeping a desultory eye out for edentula over the years and have never seen it.

I will fix up the taxonomy.
