Adlumia fungosa, commonly known as Allegheny vine, mountain fringe, or climbing fumitory, is a species of flowering plant in the Papaveraceae family. It is native to eastern North America, particularly the Appalachian region, where it grows in wooded areas, along stream banks, and in other moist, shaded habitats.

Adlumia fungosa is a biennial or short-lived perennial vine that climbs by means of tendrils. It typically reaches heights of 3 to 5 meters (10 to 16 feet) or more when supported by trees or other structures. The plant has delicate, fern-like foliage with compound leaves divided into numerous lobes.

The flowers of Adlumia fungosa are pale pink to white in color and have a distinctive tubular shape with flaring petal lobes, resembling miniature upside-down parasols. The flowers are borne in loose clusters along the vine and bloom from late spring to early summer.

This plant is valued for its ornamental beauty and is sometimes cultivated in gardens for its graceful foliage and charming flowers. It is especially well-suited to woodland gardens or shaded areas where it can climb and mingle with other plants. Adlumia fungosa is relatively low-maintenance and can self-seed under favorable conditions.

In addition to its ornamental value, Allegheny vine has a long history of medicinal use in traditional herbal medicine. It was used by Indigenous peoples and early settlers for various purposes, including the treatment of respiratory ailments and skin conditions. However, it's essential to note that Adlumia fungosa contains toxic alkaloids and should not be ingested.

Overall, Adlumia fungosa is a lovely and versatile plant that adds a touch of elegance to natural landscapes and gardens, while also providing habitat and food for wildlife such as butterflies and bees.
