Fumaria officinalis
(Map updated: March 2008)

The six species of fumitories can be difficult to distinguish, and they all tend to grow in similar habitats - on disturbed ground, the edges of arable fields and rubbish heaps. This species is scattered across Northern Ireland; it has pinkish-purple flowers with dark tips to the petals.

All names: Fumaria officinalis L.
