A tall white-flowered species known as the "spreading rockcress" or "spreadingpod rockcress".
According to ITIS, Boechera divicarpa is not found in Alaska however GBIF indicates it is present.  The petals
are supposedly purple (Hultén, FNA) which gives rise to the common name "purple rockcress",
however most if not all of the photos on the internet show blossoms with white petals
