Low growing, perennial wildflower. Smooth leaves and stems. Bright yellow flowers with 8-10 petals. Flowers don't last long and often fade to a whitish color before dropping off.
Suburban yards, roadsides, disturbed areas (moist areas preferred).
I have seen these flowers on my walk to work from the train station every Spring and always wondered what they were. Introduced to the US (as an ornamental plant) and invasive in some areas.
