Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

1. Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria L.)

1. Lesser Celandine

Weeks before Spring really arrives the yellow stars of the Celandine flowers grace the hedge-banks and the waste ground, braving the snows of February, and the bitter winds of March, to open at the first touch of sunlight. The first flowers usually appear about mid-February, and the blooming continues into May. In spite of its rather fragile appearance it is a virile plant, storing food in its swollen and tuberous roots in readiness for its next flowering.
