Stalker flower

This is the buttercup that'll never go away.

I will let a few that self-seeded stay while they are small because the bees love them.

Positives: they attract bees like crazy, they take care of themselves, they self-seed (if you love them that's a plus), no water needed, will grow on any soil. The flowers are pretty.

Negatives: they self-seed (If you don't like them that can be a real problem), their flowers open only for about 3 hours each day...and when they are not blooming their foliage looks pretty weed-like, they become leggy if not pruned.
