the ranunculus is one of my very favorite flowers. some species are popular ornamental flowers in horticulture, with many cultivars selected for large and brightly coloured flowers. the name ranunculus is late latin for "little frog," from rana "frog" and a diminutive ending. This probably refers to many species being found near water, like frogs. it's a large genus of about 400 species of plants in the ranunculaceae, which includes the buttercups, spearworts, water crowfoots and the lesser celandine. they're mostly herbaceous perennials with bright yellow or white flowers (if white, still with a yellow centre). a few have orange or red flowers. the petals are often highly lustrous, especially in yellow species.
