Ranunculus aquatilis

Ranunculus aquatilis

Ranunculus aquatilis (Common Water-crowfoot) is a plant species of the genus Ranunculus, native throughout most of Europe and North America, and also northwest Africa.

It has branching thread-like underwater leaves and toothed floater leaves. In fast flowing water the floaters may not be grown. The flowers are white petaled with yellow centres and are held a centimetre or two above the water. The floater leaves are used as props for the flowers and are grown at the same time.
