Common Fumitory
(Fumaria officinalis)

This annual has feathery, blue-green foliage on delicate branched stems. The leaves often wrap themselves around things for support. It is often found in arable fields and on waste ground. It’s pink flowers are produced from April to October.


It is easily uprooted and should be pulled out before the seeds mature and disperse.

  • Remove weeds by hand or by hoe as soon as you see them

  • Spray with a systemic weedkiller that is absorbed through the leaves of the plant, the active ingredient makes its way through the cells of the plant down to the root. It kills these first and then the foliage starts to die off
