Creeping Buttercup Overview
Also known as creeping buttercup, this perennial weed is usually found growing in lawns and moist soils and indicates that the soil structure may need improving. It is found mainly in shaded gardens and woodlands, and it propagates through stolons that run across the ground and become invasive. Regular weeding can remove it over time as its roots can be deep. Short-tongued bees can be found feeding on these bright yellow flowers between May and August.
