I dug up a few of my very plentiful Celandine to give Jacinta  an idea of the variety of leaves it can have.

Why would one want Celandine???? I dont understand. Its grand in the Scrub but in a garden garden?I know Im missing something!

So not something I'm familiar with. But I would have thought it resembled a weed! But I believe not!

Thanks very much for that, hazel. And they're all different leaves of the Celandine that you gave me? Hmmmmm. Haven't had the chance to dig up my one in question yet. But hoping for today, although it's going to be a full on day with family.

Peter, you probably haven't read my first journal on this a few days ago. But I think Celandine is such a pretty little plant and so worthy of its space. Hazel gave me some a few years ago and it came with a warning that it was a spreader. So far, so good. It's keeping within the confines of its planting position. But it has now disappeared from its original spot, and travelled further afield to a new spot altogether. But it's not growing in masses. So long as I keep track of it, it's welcome here. But maybe this is its year to spread its wings and completely take over.

Jacinta, I must give you Ranunculus ficaria 'Brazen Hussey', purple leaves and yellow flower. This plant arose in the garden at Great Dixter' and also spreads like the lesser celandine, both seeding and with all those bulbils at the root.

I so agree with Peter. In my woodland it is a spectacular sight this time if year and disappears by about June but everywhere else it's the bane of my life! It's a native wildflowers but decidedly on the weed side of the spectrum.

Thank you, Mary. That would be lovely.

I go between digging it out and thinking at least it disappears later on!
