Artist's Description

This uncommon plant is a very large member of the buttercup family, and is usually found growing in wet ground. Its pointed spear-like leaves explain its name and distinguish it from other buttercups.

Like all buttercups, Greater Spearwort is poisonous and should not be eaten.

The Manx name for this flower is “Lossyr lheeannagh vooar”, which means “Large meadow flame”.
