With the summer movie season upon us, here is a plant with an appropriate name, buttered popcorn. It is also known as creeping buttercup, and can be found in textbooks and garden centers as Ranunculus repens. We have the plant with the bright little yellow flowers in several spots in the garden. Katie and Barb warned me in their notes about the garden that it is invasive. I have had to scale it back in a spot or two. It grows well and seems very drought tolerant. Look for it in our main garden and in the garden near the southeast door.
