Plant details

The long-lasting, button-like, bright yellow, double flowers of this buttercup are a really uplifting sight and will command attention in meadows, cottage gardens or flower arrangements. Unlike the species buttercup, it doesn't spread by underground runners and is more clump-forming, which makes it much more suitable for a garden situation. This plant has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
