Photo: Buttercups Italy

Fields of colorful yellow buttercups are found throughout the region of South Tyrol, Italy.

Attractive yellow buttercups brighten any field in South Tyrol, Italy but are actually considered as a perennial weed. Buttercups grow in lawns, pastures and fields and bloom from April to July throughout South Tyrol, Italy.

The flowers have both male and female organs and are pollinated by bees, flies, beetles, moths and butterflies. The buttercups prefer acid, neutral and basic soils and can grow in partial shade or no shade at all but require moist soil to survive. The buttercups are considered very low on the scale for their usefulness around Italy, Europe.

The stems of the buttercups are about 8-25 inches tall, standing erect and have a slightly hairy flower. The flower forms at the top of the stems and has about five to seven petals each.

Buttercups carry an old myth where you press a buttercup under your chin to see if you like butter or not which sometimes can cause a slight skin irritation due to the glycoside in this plant. ... continue below the picture...
