Creeping Buttercup (Ranunculus Repens)
The creeping buttercup is a perennial with bright yellow flowers, which are poisonous if eaten. It is the most common of buttercups and is often considered a troublesome weed.
It can spread extremely quickly and because it forms a low rosette, it avoids mower blades. The flowers appear from May to August and usually have five petals.
The creeping buttercup has stems which produce roots and also new plants from the nodes.
Another name for the creeping buttercup includes creeping crow’s foot.
Cutting at a low height will not remove the entire plant, so the most effective method would be to use Crossbar or Greenor to control creeping buttercup if hand removal is not possible.
