Mystery Weed Identified

Everywhere I look, especially in the fields and open areas, I see these yellow blooms. I knew they were weeds but I wondered what they are and can I grow these in my yard. So behind my house I went out and picked a few so I could research and identify for a name.

The best I can tell these are called bulbous buttercups. The Bulbous Buttercup has bright yellow flowers with downturned sepals underneath the petals. It has a hairy stem with a bulb-like swelling at the base, and leaves with three lobes.

Tah-dah, mystery has been solved. I can grow these in my yard if I contain them so they don’t invade. I just might do this. They are perennial, meaning they will return each year. They are yellow like sunshine. I noticed they are seen in other countries as well, like Ireland.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

    • They are everywhere here, especially in the cow fields and pastures. And I read they are poisonous to cattle. They have a bitter taste according to what I read. They bloom for weeks, that is why I wanted them in my yard.
