Creeping Buttercup Weed Killer

Ranunculus repens Herbicide

Description of Buttercup, Creeping (Ranunculus repens):
Creeping buttercup can be found in poorly draining lawns and grows well in heavy clay. It grows low, and creeps with horizontal stems above the soil (stolons) which makes it easy to differentiate from other species of buttercup (which spread via rhizomes... roots under the soil). They flower in the spring and fall. Best time of year to treat this weed is spring and summer.
