    This does not look like Lesser Celandine and is definitely not creeping buttercup so I would say Mouse ear hawk weed.
    It is a weed and wants taking out, it will spread but not as fast as creeping buttercup or celandine.
    I watched celandine cover the floor of the local woods from a few plants near a beck to covering and smothering all the banks around in less than six years walking my dog.



    Thank you one to get rid of then image


    Anyone else confirm the weed ?

    Yes image  definitely one of the many variants of Hawkweed.

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Yes me too. Though going with the definition of a weed as a plant in the wrong place I suppose it depends where it's growing. One woman's weed is another woman's wildflowerimage

    Absolutely, I grow both lesser celandines and hawkweeds (several species), and buttercups, in the wild area of my garden.
