Commonly known as Aconite Buttercup or Fair maids of France, Ranunculus aconitifolius has dark green, lobed foliage with toothed margins much like an Aconitum. Single, pure white flowers with a yellow centre are held on upright, branching stems during spring. This non-invasive Ranunculus is summer deciduous, after flowering it will die away becoming dormant throughout the summer months, before reappearing the flowing spring. Be careful not to mistakenly dig it up.
Great for moist, woodland areas or under-planting trees and shrubs. R. aconitifolius is also happy to grow in boggy situations in full sun. Native to Central Europe
