Meadow Buttercup ‘Ranunculus acris’

The tallest and most graceful of all the butter-cups. Glossy yellow flowers, superb growing in association with Ragged Robin. Common names include meadow buttercup, tall buttercup, common buttercup and giant buttercup.

The Victorians believed that the buttercup represented ingratitude and childishness. Perhaps this stems from the playground game of holding a buttercup flower beneath the chin to see if it casts a reflection – if it does, the owner of the chin is said to like butter.
