Hello,

I sowed a packet of what I thought was Nigella Moody Blues flowers, but have found an impostor flowering in it's place (see the attached photos).

I'm really disappointed, but want to know what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Greetings, welcome to the Forums.

Various species of Fumitory (Fumaria) are native to much of Europe, western Asia, and northern and eastern Africa. There are several similar species native to Great Britain.
Fumaria is in the Poppy Family (Papaveraceae), but was formerly segregated in the Fumariaceae, along with similar genera, such as Corydalis, due to their zygomorphic perianths.
Apothecary's Fumitory (Fumaria officinalis) was once used extensively in herbal remedies. Currently, such usage is much less due to concerns about efficacy and safety.
