What is Greater Celandine?

Greater Celandine

The most interesting feature of the greater celandine plant is not the flowers or the leaves, although it does make a pretty, round bush. The most interesting feature is the bright orange sap that oozes when you break the stem. This sap is used to remove warts, but can cause contact dermatitis. Greater celandine is extremely acidic and loves to live in acidic soils. It will also grow well in rocky, harsh soils.
