A few rains in Autumn are enough to germinate the seeds, and soon, great carpets of green fumitory shoots cover the waste ground. Fumaria officinalis, the common fumitory, drug fumitory or earth smoke, is a herbaceous annual flowering plant in the poppy family Papaveraceae. It is the most common species of the genus Fumaria in Western and Central Europe. It has become naturalised in many temperate parts of the world.
