Wild Flower - Celery-leaved Buttercup - Ranunculus
Celery-leaved Buttercup – Ranunculus
Celery-leaved buttercup is a native annual with a short, stout and glossy stem that grows up to 60cm tall. Its three-lobed leaves are attached to the stem by a long, glossy stalk that flattens and broadens towards its base giving it a passing resemblence to a stick of celery, hence the common name. The small but typically buttercup flowers are clustered into much branched inflorescences and bloom from May to September.
Easily grown from seed and can be sown at any time of the year. Needs plenty of bare, wet mud.
