Fumaria muralis boraei Papaveraceae Common Ramping-Fumitory

Fumaria muralis ssp boraei 17kb

Description - Flowers are a similar size to White-Ramping Fumitory, F. capreolata, but are usually a darker pink, and the older flowers remain upright. The fruit pedicel will also be seen to be pointing upwards, unlike that of the latter species, where it curves over. The plant itself is bushy, but does not climb quite as far as F. capreolata.

Habitat - Found most commonly in hedgebanks, or field edges, sometimes in gardens or on waste land.

Comments - Nearly as common as F. capreolata, and sometimes difficult to tell apart from that species. They often grow together. This species is sometimes very rich in colouration, and most attractive.
