Ranunculus

Ranunculus acris

Meadow Buttercup

Widespread - a relic of old pasture lands.

Creeping Buttercup

Ubiquitous. A common garden weed.

Celery-leaved Buttercup

Scattered but may be locally abundant. Usually associated with land drains.

Ranunculus flammula

Lesser Spearwort

Known only from wet pasture-land adjacent to Priory road.
