Help me identify this plant PlantID I’m very confused. Had some cranesbill geraniums growing in pots last year which I’ve since transplanted to a new flowerbed. This clump is massive but is unexpectedly producing yellow buttercup like flowers !!! Aaarrggghh. Is it possible that creeping buttercup has infiltrated and taken over my geranium ??! And if so, how invasive is it ? Either way, I think it’s coming out as yellow not in my plans currently. If not buttercups, any ideas ?

I've got it growing in the middle of a creeping navelwort and it doesn't give me a lot of bother so I let it do its thing. Good luck 👍

@pelly thanks. It’s out now. Deep at its core I found my poor little geranium completely enveloped. RIP my little friend. Both in the green bin

Glad you managed to get it out, my mom has tonnes of it in her garden. A real pain in the bum. @davosteel74 🤔
