Creeping Buttercup Ranunculusrepens

The Creeping Buttercup is a low growing perennial weed which prefers wet heavy soils. It is a common weed in lawns in the UK and as the name suggests, it spreads using creeping stems that run along the surface of the ground, extending upwards into a new plant on a regular basis. The roots are very fibrous and dense, this weed is difficult to remove permanently as it takes several years to weaken the plant

The bright yellow flowers have 6 to 9 petals each and can be seed from mid spring to late summer.
