Creeping buttercup is often considered an invasive weed to most gardeners, however it came be an attractive plant for wildlife as it provides a good source of nectar and pollen for flies, honey bees, and beetles, amongst other insects. Growing at pretty much ground level at 2-3 inches, Ranunculus repens enjoys wet conditions, wet soil and poorly-drained soils. In heavy soil lawns, it can spread quickly, accelerated by mown grass. This poisonous perennial weed, is admired for its simplistic yellow flowers. Grazing animals avoid eating creeping buttercup as the taste is acrid and unpleasant. If it is growing in a hay field, once it is dried with the hay it loses its poisons and is safe for animal consumption.

Available as individual plants or as buttercup seeds.
