This native buttercup blooms April through mid-May and is an early shining star of our prairies. Very persistent due to self-sowing. It also makes a nice addition to native gardens giving our native bees important resources early in the season.
This small-flowered native buttercup is known by the common names woodland buttercup and little buttercup. It is native to many parts of the west where it grows in wet prairies or wet, wooded habitat such as oak/ash woodland and forested streambanks. It often grows as a biennial.
