Caltha palustris (Marsh marigold, Kingcup)

Caltha palustris is our well known native kingcup with masses of cheerful yellow flowers in early Spring and again later. Essential.

Our native and well known kingcup, this is an easy plant to grow in damp or wet conditions with rounded leaves and flower stems supporting multiple large buttercup-like flowers. If you cut them back as the flowers fade, they will produce a second and often even a third set of flowers in one season. One of the few plants that prefers a shaded position (not TOO dark!)
