Ranunculus repens 'Buttered Popcorn'
|Wandering flower tries to outshine its cranesbill neighbor
Small yellow flowers with bright green leaves highlighted in gold. The bright golden buttercup flowers are borne on sprawling runners - we saw the first ones on our plant at the very end of May.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|I bought a pot of "Buttered Popcorn" three years ago for the varigated foliage to put in my border garden. It has taken over the garden and half the lawn. I've pulled up runners and cut it back, but that only seems to encourage it. It is even forcing out my Chocolate Ruffles Ajuga. HELP!! How do I keep it in check? I'm planning on digging up the original plant to put back into a pot--I relaly do like the foliage, but how do I get it out of the lawn?

|This is one horrible plant. I too, have been waging war against it. For about 5 years I have been trying to get rid of this. It chokes out everything. It spreads from rooting stems and seeds.
