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.

Avoid excessively sunny places; we suggest to put the The in a partially shady spot. These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year.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 ButtercupTenere Umido
Water regularly, every 1-2 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 1-2 glasses of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. 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.

Pests Buttercup
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.
