Common Fumitory
Fumaria officinalis

Common Fumitory is also known as Beggary, Earth-smoke and Wax doll. This rather week, spreading or sprawling annual wildflower has flowers with pink, spurred, two-lipped petals, which are crimson-tipped, growing on stalked spikes. The feathery blue-green leaves are finely divided, each leaflet on its own stalk, and can wrap themselves around other plants for support. It is a widespread flower and is commonly found in arable fields, waste ground and along roadsides. It flowers from April to October and the blossom is said to resemble smoke, hence the latin name Fumaria. Externally it can make an antiseptic lotion.
