The plants in Genus Arabis were reorganized and renamed. The variations of Arabis holboellii were given new names. The name Boechera holboelli was assigned to a plant that only grows in Greenland. In our region the plants called simply Arabis holboellii are now named Boechera pendulocarpa. The common name, Holboll's Rockcress, has been in use for plants in North America but this will probably be changing.
