Latin Name: Ranunculus acris
Forestart Reference: MEABUT

The familiar bright yellow flowered perennial of meadows and pastures.

Waving flower stems can grow to 75cm tall and the gold yellow cups open from mid-spring to mid-autumn. Evergreen deeply cut leaves. Prefers slightly damper soils, but is a great survivor in meadows since it doesn't get eaten by cows. Still used as by children in the under-chin test for fondness of butter! Looks quite at home in the herbaceous border or under shrubs.

Sow either in autumn or spring.
