I know - worried that any ranunculus that germinates so easily and quickly must be a weed! Will send PM - thanks.

It appears my fears were justified. It doesn't look like bullatus at all to me and is extremely vigorous with lots of little squinny flowers and setting loads of seed. I'm going to ditch it just in case it turns out to be hardy as I suspect extreme weedy tendencies. I dare say someone might be able to suggest an ID? I won't have the plant long enough to change the label however.....

Bad luck Daren with R. bullatus! You can get seeds from www.rareplants.de. I have just sown mine.

Thank you Poul - I will have a look. I've seen their website but never actually bought anything yet.

Hi Darren . Looks very much like a weed I have in my garden . I think it is Ranunculus muricatus . Ditching is a good idea

Congratulations Poul,

And thank you Jandals, on behalf of those others who requested the 'bullatus' seed and are now trying to eradicate this from their gardens.... At least they can now give it a name!

Poul, Ranuculatus bullatus doesn't have a stem to its leaf.

Then I seem to be as unlucky as Darren :(

Don't give up. I quite often get stray seedlings that have nothing to do with the seeds I planted. They've just arrived. Curiously, they often look like the one in your pic, but in my case they would be bramble!

Thanks for your encouragement! Normally I keep ungerminated pots for 2-3 years and will certainly do the same with this one, hoping the true R. bullatus shows op.
