I've got my European Wildflower book here and you have a definitely either or.

You definitely have a buttercup - Ranunculus but then you knew that ;) If it has a bulbous base to the stem then you have Bulbous Buttercup - Ranunculus bulbosus, it it doesn't then you have a Meadow Buttercup - Ranunculus acris. If it has runners, then its Ranunculus repens (just read the other thread LOL) The flowers do look like they have a sheen on them and as children we would hold them under a friends chin, if the yellow reflected on the chin then we would say you like butter (kids ey!)

Either way they can be pretty agressive weeds, if you have a wildflower area then try and keep it confined there

Thank you Baa, for all your info and all the work looking this stuff up in your book. sounds like that book comes in pretty handy! I think I will keep a few in the wild flower bed for now, but I have learned the look so I can pull them out if they get out of hand.

Thanks Again!!
