What is Adonis amurensis

Adonis amurensis (scientific name:Adonis ramosa) is a cold-tolerant perennial plant in the family Ranunculaceae, which is native to East Asia such as Japan.
It is said to be the heralding flower of spring, and its yellow, double-flowered flowers bloom in the mountains and Japanese gardens in early spring. It produces yellow flowers before the leaves appear, so at first only the flowers bloom and then the leaves appear. Its Japanese name is "Fukujuso", which means "lucky" in Japanese, so it is also used for planting at New Year's parties. The flower color is yellow, and other garden varieties include red and green. The flowers are dainty, but the whole plant is poisonous because it is part of the buttercup family.
The language of the flower is "inviting happiness".
