Yellow flower mystery

Recommended Posts

From our email, this note, photo and our reply. If any of you have contrary advice for M.E. or more about how to most easily and effectively get rid of this, please say so here!


I have yet ANOTHER unidentified plant in my garden.  The petals are shiny and waxy looking and a pretty bright yellow.  The leaves look a bit like geranium leaves.  It is spreading quite vigorously. What is it and do I want it, or should I pull it out? See picture below. - M.E. -





That's creeping buttercup, Ranunculus repens. If you can get rid of it, do it. If it's well established, getting rid of it is a tall order, involving digging and revisiting the spot regularly to catch the come-back plants.
