Ficaria verna cultivars (Formerly Ranunculus ficaria)

Our native Lesser Celandine is a cheerful sight in Spring with it’s shiny buttercup yellow flowers. However it’s ability to spread from tubers make it unwelcome in most gardens, although if your gardening is relaxed then only a transient irritant.

There are however many interesting varieties providing a range of interesting flowers and leaf forms without the invasive tendency. Like the common native they will thrive in moist soils but will also tolerate drier conditions.
