This lovely plant of wet meadows and water margins will actually grow in most situations, provided the soil does not stay bone-dry for too long. Each stem has several 2" buttercup flowers, above large glossy round leaves.
The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Can be grown in shallow water round the edge of a pond. It also makes a good bog garden plant, and grows well in borders.
Growing in Britain since before the Ice Age and traditionally hung on doors to ward off lightning and witches.
