Lesser celandine is another herald of spring to look out for.

  1. Invasive! Very pretty, but it’s destroying marsh and other lowland habitat, crowding out marsh marigol, bloodroot, wild ginger, twin leaf, and other spring plants that wildlife depend on.


    • The poisonous lesser celandine, a member of the buttercup family, is not listed as an invasive plant in the UK; it is considered a harbinger of spring.

      Because of the short growing period, the plant may not be a problem in gardens – it can provide colour at a time when the ground tends to look bare.

      I look forward to seeing lesser celandine on Wilden Marsh.
