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 buttercup pollen may be the reason why the flowers are so often com-pletely neglected by hive bees.

"Boston Seeds is the  UK’s leading online grass and wildflower seed company
We produce about 1000 hectares of seed crops in the UK each year, as well as crops in Europe, including Germany and Czech Republic.

Boston Seeds launched their online shop in 2003. Trading activity covers specialist products grown for wholesale customers and, increasingly, a web-based retail business specialising in wildflowers and grass seeds.

Investment for the Future
In 2010 we purchased three hectares of land for research and development. Our plan is to create a range of habitats to develop and evaluate environmental grass and wildflower seed mixtures. We are increasingly asked to provide specifications and seed mixtures for habitat projects to improve biodiversity and/or reinstatement. Additionally, projects for RSPB, Environmental Stewardship, Woodland Trust and Natural England (to name a few) are becoming more important to our core business and we must stay at the forefront of our industry."

They sell Pulicaria dysenterica (Fleabane) as seeds.

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
