Lesser Celandine and Bloodroot

DiOhio

By Diohio


Lesser Celandine and Bloodroot (Ranunculus ficaria (Blameye))

Part of the Lesser Celandine colony creeping over onto the Bloodroot plants. Lesser Celandine is also called Pilewort. I rescued two little clumps from a ditch near my mother's house in PA where I new shopping center was to be constructed. The two little clumps are now fairly large colonies and this year I'm finding new plants quite a few feet away from the origional colonies. As the yellow flowers fade, the petals often turn partially white.

Argh! This plant is EVERYWHERE in my garden - it is very nice, BUT I've just got too much of it and it's so difficult to get rid of..... Jac - do you want some of mine?!

Sid, I have this plant in the woodland garden with hostas and taller plants, so I'm really pleased that it's becoming a nice spring ground cover. It doesn't last very long here. By summer it's completely faded away.
