Creeping buttercups

The cheery yellow flowers of the Buttercup are actually quite pretty but it’s considered by many to be a weed due to its invasive and prolific nature. The plants seed like rabbits breed, but the creeping stems root and take hold as the plant scrabbles over soil. Each newly rooted spot is a new plant. Add to that that, the plant can reestablish itself with just a root or stem fragment and you probably get the picture why it’s not always that welcomed.
