Marginal Plant – Caltha palustris – Marsh Marigold
Marsh Marigold Caltha palustris is also known as Caltha Cowslip. Other names are Marsh Cup or Cup of the Marsh. It is not really a marigold at all, rather a member of the Buttercup Family (Ranunculaceae).
The Marsh Marigold has no petals. Instead, each cluster of flowers is made of five to nine sepals, which resemble petals, surrounding many stamens and pistils. Its waxy deciduous foliage is rich green and each leaf is heart-shaped, kidney-shaped or rounded with two lobes.
Watch these vibrant perennials spread every spring, attracting the first birds, butterflies, and bees of the season.
This is for 1 unpotted bare root plant cutting that will require potting as soon as possible after arrival.
