"Weed" identification please :0)

Post  Harleyrider on Wed May 04, 2011 7:32 pm

I collected this "weed" recently whilst tidying up outside the house. I think it will make a beautiful accent in the right pot. Can anyone put a name to it please?

Your plant is Cymbalaria Muralis, the Ivy leaved Toad-flax. This is the wild variety as you point out, there is a cultivated variety which has bigger flowers.

There is also an alba variety of this which is a rockery plant and looks even better, spreads readily in scree/gravel beds.

Hope it helps.

Dear Steve

In the area where i live this little plant is protected in the wild.
We call it "muurleeuwenbek" which means "wall lionsmouth" Very Happy

When it is in the garden it grows indeed as fast as weed.
Tried to keep it in a kusa-pot , but it suffered and slowly died.
Lovely crispie plant and inspiring flowers , aren't they !
Kind regards
Morea
