Ranunculus acris — Meadow Buttercup


Plants grown in 9cm pots.


Buttercups sometimes frighten gardeners because they have experienced Creeping Buttercup as a rapidly spreading weed in their garden, yet almost everyone has a nostalgic love for them, and this one is a perfectly well-mannered buttercup fitted to growing in gardens (some others are actually extremely choice - see different Ranunculus listings), seeding about a little but not excessively -you can cut down after flowering to prevent seeding and perhaps induce a later second show. A long-stalked upright perennial species with beautiful, bright, glossy yellow, bowl-shaped flowers in early summer. Excellent flower for pollinators like bees and butterflies. Generally pest-free.


Can be introduced to lawns in patches being converted to meadows; clear a little bit of grass around them until established and mow any time after flowering. If the grass is getting too long and is mowed before they have flowered, they will still come up again but usually flower shorter and later.


Foliage: Deciduous


Height: 60cm

Spread: 10 - 50cm in 2-5 years
