Love the sinner, hate the sin
I like buttercups too. I have a small patch of them. I love bright yellow so they attract me. Ours are kept mowed so it never gets very tall.

I like coneflowers and have some that were from plants dug from road areas being destroyed by county projects to clear the ditches along side the roads. I've also purchased a few cultivars but most don't live long here. I've never been able to get White Swan to live more than one season.

I have a good stand of originally wild Spiderwort plus some domesticated cultivars. Those have cross pollinated thanks to the bumblebees resulting in some interesting blooms.

I love the much dispised multifloral rose of the 50s in the middle U.S. It was used as living fences that were almost immpregnable by most livestocks. Goats however will gladly eat it. It can spread rampantly and become a real pest. But I manage to control it pretty well. I also like other wild roses native to my area.

GOD bless and keep each of you.
