Bulbous Buttercup
 

 

The Bulbous Buttercup is so named because of the swollen stem base, but a more easy means of recognition are the down-turned sepals (at the base of the flower, beneath the petals). Otherwise its appearance is of a standard buttercup with glossy yellow petals.

It flowers earlier than other buttercups, during the spring months. By early summer the disappearance is sudden. It is common everywhere, particularly in the south, mainly in dry grassland on lime.
