When people are younger, the playful question you always ask is “Do you like butter?” When you hold a buttercup up to your chin and your chin turns yellow, then you like butter. These flowers are actually weeds. The common buttercup blooms in May and June, and usually lives for two months. One plant can produce between 200 and 1000 seeds, which fall off and blossom in the upcoming season. Like all weeds, the buttercup takes valuable solid from grass for it to grow. Controlling buttercups is essential for your lawn to grow healthy and simply mowing your lawn will not get rid of them.
Buttercups are covered under many of our Lawn Programs in our Tree and Turf Division. Please contact us today for a free lawn inspection!
