Golden orange buttercup-like flowers borne on slender stems in late spring and early summer above deeply divided mid-green leaves. As long as their roots do not dry out these feisty golden orange flowers thrive in full sun or partial shade. Perfect for a moist border or the margins of a pond or stream.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring. In spring apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plants and water in very dry weather to prevent the soil from drying out.
