Plant identification

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Plant identification

Post by akrowe » 01 May 2019, 22:29

Hello,

Was wondering if someone could help me identify this plant found in partially wooded parkland just north of London.

Hi ackrowe

I first thought this may be Parsley Piert but looking closer I find it is not that. I'm just off to bed but would you mind waiting until tomorrow and we will have a longer look and let you know.

It's difficult to say as there is so little of it to see (and it helps to have a photo of the whole plant so that you can see the way the leaves/stems come out of the ground and how the leaves come off the stems, but I wonder if these are young Fumitory plants. Here is our entry for it:

and here is a photo of a young Fumitory plant

does it look to you like it could be the same?

Sorry for the quality of the photos and yes I reckon that's it a young fumitory.

Thank you so much for your help!
