Anemone ranunculoides is named because of its similarity to the humble buttercup.
Its deeply-cut dark green foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the vivid yellow blooms.
Plant it in moist but well-drained soil rich in leafmould. A site in partial shade is ideal, so in woodland is ideal.
Anemone ranunculoides grows to just four inches in height but can spread to form eye-catching colonies.
