Sunny flowers in spring...
About 50 genera including 1900 species belong to the Ranunculaceae (buttercup or crowfoot family). Plants in this family mainly develop composite leaves. Flowers have many stamens and pistils arranged spirally and they are green (Helleborus
), white (Isopyrum
), blue (Nigella
). The most spectacular are spring yellow flowers of Caltha
. The family includes mostly perennial plants; herbs, woody climbers and sporadically shrubs. In a foreland of mountains we can often find representatives of the genera Ranunculus
. On the level of mountain meadows plants of Aconitum
, Caltha laeta
grow. In higher positions, in the spruce forest there is a habitat for a climber plant, Clematis alpina
. On bare rocks, near glaciers Ranunculus glacialis
try to survive. Almost in the all zones of mountains we can see members of Ranunculaceae.
