I have Lesser Celandine ( Fig Buttercup ) all over my garden. The flowers are very pretty but neverless classed as a weed. Is it necessay to remove it? As it dies off soon! There is no such thing as a weed! ha ha

On plant Lesser Celandine



Such a pretty little flower too, I suppose its a matter of preference what you do with them, they will continue growing/flowering until October. If you like them its no harm to have them, just try to keep them under control. As far as i know they have medicinal purpose too.

I have it too. I find it tends to die off by May as I hoe it as much as I can as it gets everywhere if left. It grows through the thickest plant and I have come to dislike it.
