46. Creeping Buttercup

Several kinds of buttercup grow in the meadows and this is one of the most abundant. It is especially fond of a damp clay soil and in some districts becomes a nuisance as a garden weed. The creeping buttercup spreads by means of long runners which root and form new plants. The flowering stems rise to from one to two feet and the familiar yellow flowers appear from May until the autumn.
