Description

Title:
Ranunculus bulbosus (Bulbous buttercup)
Caption / Description:

A flowering Ranunculus bulbosus (Bulbous buttercup) plant growing in grass along an abandoned railway line. Ranunculus bulbosus is so named because it has a corm that helps the plant survive over winter. Without digging the plant up to see the corm, it is still identifiable by the way the sepals behind the flower fold back on themselves.

The plant blooms from April to May, bearing yellow flowers around 1.5 - 3 cm wide.
