An early-flowering beauty in the Buttercup family that is perfect for wet areas. Dark, waxy leaves contrast with vibrant yellow flowers appearing in early spring and persisting into early summer. Plants are clump-forming, creating attractive mounded groups. This plant occurs naturally along stream banks and pond edges where the soil is consistently moist to wet with part to full sun. Plants can survive occasional drought but will lose their leaves and go dormant.

Some historical records claim that parts of the Marsh Marigold can be eaten, however, plants contain toxic compounds and must be boiled in multiple changes of water before consumption. Leaves are generally resistant to deer and rabbits. Flowers attract pollinators.
