Creeping Buttercup - Ranunculus Repens - is just the right plant for you if you are looking for a low-maintenance plant that will reward you with its resilient growth year after year. It won't take long for the trailing stolons of this perennial to transform a once-bare, plant-free area into a rich blanket of emerald green leaves, thanks to their rapid growth.
Most gardeners prefer this plant as a stoloniferous plant because it spreads quickly through thin turf, forming patches on lawns and parks. Native to Europe, its range extends northward, where you can find it in Norway as well. This weed is most noticeable during the spring and summer months when it is blooming.
It is a commonly occurring plant that you can find in various habitats, including moist grassland, woodland, field edges, parks, and gardens. There are three tooth leaflets on each stalk, with the central leaflet forming a dark green border with light patches on it and each leaflet attaching to a stalk. It produces brilliant yellow, glossy blooms with approximately 5 to 10 petals.
This plant is easily distinguishable from the rest of its varieties with its bright yellow flowers. Even though this species prefers moist fields and meadows with rich, wet soil composition, you can also find it growing along roadside ditches and in damp sand and gravel deposits. The stolon system enables this plant to expand horizontally and swiftly into weed-free regions next to the growing site.
The presence of long and well-branched stolons in open and fertile areas aids in the rapid colonization of the plant. When you subject it to heavy grazing or mowing, it typically grows to creep, but it grows in an upright form when you expose it to taller vegetation. In dry conditions, creeping Buttercup reproduces by seeds; in wet conditions, creeping Buttercup spreads by runners.
Despite its small size, it has diverse characteristics and varieties. Its flowers appear from May to August. Some plants do not blossom the first year you plant them, or their blossoming can delay till the late year, sometimes until the end of October. Insects then pollinate the flowers. While some self-pollination occurs, cross-pollination is still the most common reproduction method. Plants from disturbed environments tend to blossom more profusely, maybe because seed generation is more useful in a disturbed environment.
