Creeping Buttercup(Ranunculus repens)

By far the most common of our buttercups is the Creeping Buttercup. It flowers from May to July and you can find it just about anywhere, including on your lawn!

It tends to be lower growing than the Meadow Buttercup and it has a vigorous display of large leaves which is the best way to tell them apart. The other common buttercup, Bulbous Buttercup does not have these leaves either and is a much more delicate flower.

Found across the county in hedgerows, woodlands, grassland, and waysides.
