Ranunculus acris ‘Stevenii’

Ranunculus acris ‘Stevenii’ is the giant form of meadow buttercup. Meadow buttercup will form a large clump once established but it shouldn’t be confused with creeping buttercup (Ranunculus repens) which is the invasive weed. Perhaps it is this confusion that means we don’t sell as much of this wonderful early summer perennial as I think we should. I have it repeated throughout one area of the garden where it lights up little beacons of glorious buttercup yellow along the borders in late May-June. Lovely combined with Lupinus species from Kashmir and spikes of rich blue Camassias, would also look superb planted with large scarlet red poppies. Height 1-1.2m. Sunny position.
