IVY-LEAVED TOADFLAX Cymbalaria muralis (Scrophulariaceae) Trailing. Hairless perennial with trailing, purplish stems. Grows on rocks and walls. FLOWERS are 10-12mm across and lilac with yellow and white at the centre, and a curved spur; borne on long stalks (Apr-Nov). FRUITS are capsules, borne on long stalks that become recurved with maturity, forcing the fruit into nooks and crannies. LEAVES are long-stalked, ivy-shaped, 5-lobed and borne on long stalks. STATUS-Originally a garden plant but now widely naturalised throughout much of the region, except N Scotland.
