What is Ranunculus silerifolius
Ranunculus silerifolius (scientific name: Ranunculus silerifolius) is native to East Asia such as Japan, Korea, China, India, Indonesia and Bhutan, and is a wild perennial inf the family Ranunculaceae. It grows naturally in wetlands throughout Japan. Root leaves alternate between 3 leaves. From spring to summer, it draws out the loose inflorescences from the leaf buds and blooms with a yellow glossy five-valve flower. After the flower, it produces a confetti-like fruit, and the tip of the fruit bends outward. Since it is one of the family Ranunculaceae, it is a toxic plant, so there is a risk of it being in contact with the liquid.
