8. Marsh Marigold
(Caltha palustris L.)

8. Marsh Marigold

Kingcup, May-blob and Marybud are other old names for this well-known plant whose handsome golden flowers adorn the streamside and marsh in spring. At first glance the flowers are like large buttercups, but whereas the buttercup has yellow petals with green sepals beneath, the marsh marigold has no true petals. Instead, the sepals are coloured to resemble petals.
