Ivy-leaved toadflax Cymbalaria muralis is often found in association with A trichomanes and A ruta-muraria. C muralis is an escaped garden flower originally from the South of Europe but has become an established part of our flora on mortared  walls.

C muralis has the ability to colonise walls because once finished flowering the seed heads turn back to the stone to deposit seed in crevices between rocks.

Rodwell (2000) classifies this vegetation as OV42 Cymbalaria muralis community.
