Ranunculus ‘Buttered Popcorn’ or ‘Creeping Buttercup’ creates a beautiful blanket of stunning yellow flowers displayed above mounds of glossy, ruffled variegated leaves in varying shades of shiny gold and green.

‘Buttered Popcorn’ tends to spread out via narrow, propagating stems that take root in medium to wet soil with partial to full shade, producing bright colors in shadier conditions.

Ranunculus ‘Buttered Popcorn’ is tolerant of heavy shade and overly-saturated soil, making it perfect as groundcover or naturalizing informal areas. Ranunculus ‘Buttered Popcorn’ is a showy evergreen that is sure to attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, but may have invasive tendencies if left unchecked.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
