There are four days left until the Summer Garden opens its doors to visitors. And now the answer to the botanical riddle.

This is a malicious weed of fields and vegetable gardens, but at the same time a medicinal plant. Smoky officinalis (Fumaria officinalis L.) – this is the name of this plant. The popular names of this plant are as follows: alamnica, smoke-grass, wild rue, breadbasket, unborn, lamb.

Until 1891, it was used in official medicine and was part of the Russian Pharmacopoeia. Now it is used only in traditional medicine, although in European countries haze is used in official medicine.
