Creeping Buttercup
 

 

Creeping Buttercup is an aggressive spreading plant due to its creeping runners. The flowers are glossy yellow, but unlike the Bulbous Buttercup the sepals (beneath the petals) are not down-turned and unlike the Meadow Buttercup the stalks are furrowed.

Very common everywhere from late spring to mid autumn, found in a variety of habitats from grassland to damp woodlands, waysides and waste ground, and beside rivers and streams. It is also the most likely buttercup to be found growing as a garden weed.
