Already revealed the first bright yellow flowers lesser celandine (other names are pilewort, fig buttercup). This plant blooms one of the first and due to the fast interesting method of vegetative propagation - with the help of brood buds - it is able to form flowering carpets in early spring.

Such a flowering carpet of pale green leaves and bright yellow flowers you can see now in Mykolaiv Zoo. Look for a meadow of flowering celandines at the entrance to the zoo, to the left of the decorative concrete "hippos".
