Ranunculus repens (Creeping Buttercup)

Yellow

May - September

This plant is found in lawns, borders and bare soil areas.

All Ranunculus species are poisonous when eaten fresh by cattle, horses, and other livestock, but their acrid taste and the blistering of the mouth caused by their poison means they are usually left uneaten.

Poisoning can occur where buttercups are abundant in overgrazed fields where little other edible plant growth is left, and the animals eat them out of desperation.

The pollen of buttercups has been proved to be injurious to bees in Switzerland and responsible for a form of 'May sickness'.

The harmful nature of butter-cup pollen may be the reason why the flowers are so often com-pletely neg-lected by hive bees.
