These plants are used in rock gardens. The Buttercup has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. Buttercup Is an evergreen; during spring iIt assumes a white colouring; the adult specimens are small in size and reach 12 cm high.
Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day. Let's grow the The Buttercup outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.If you desire cleaning the ground from the bulbous plants after flowering, wait for the leaves to dry; later itís possible to take the bulbs out of the ground and place them somewhere dark, cool and dry, until the best season to plant them again.
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 1-2 weeks can be enough using 1-2 glasses of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Cultivate in a quite humid, not excessively drained, soil.
If desired, we can grow the The Buttercup in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
