Creeping Buttercup (Ranunculus repens)

Creeping Buttercup (Ranunculus repens), an invader of shady damp in wetland and woodland complexes in the ranges and the southeast, and a fixture of river corridors around Melbourne.

A Eurasian native, Creeping Buttercup turned up in Victoria c. 1900, with a record from the far southwest, and then in Gippsland in 1909. The species is highly resistant to manual removal, mechanical cultivation and herbicide application, and an influential environmental weed both in Victoria and in various other temperate environments around the world.
