Marsh Marigold

Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris)

In flower April 14 - April 30. Plant 6-30 inches tall. The shiny yellow flowers resemble those of buttercups because this genus is closely related to buttercups. Leaves are heart shaped and appear to sit horizontally on top of their petioles (stalks). This plant grows in low swampy places and is particularly abundant near the end of the short circular trail at the west end of the Galvin faculty parking lot.
