Lesser celandine (Ficaria verna)
Lesser celandine (Ficaria verna)
One of the earliest flowering plants after winter, the flower provides an important nectar source for queen bumblebees emerging from hibernation and other early insects. It has yellow star-like flowers and glossy green heart-shaped leaves and can frequently be found beside damp woodland paths and tracks, near stream banks, in ditches and in the shade of hedgerows. Lesser celandine was believed to cure haemorrhoids and for this reason is also known as pilewort. It is also high in vitamin C and was eaten to prevent scurvy.
