Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

11. Water Crowfoot
(Ranunculus aquatilis L.)

11. Water Crowfoot

A plant of the still waters, sometimes covering large areas, its floating leaves often completely hiding the water surface. The leaves below the surface are quite different in form from the floating leaves, being little more than thin, branched filaments. The flowers are white tinged with yellow at the base of the petals, and are carried singly on erect stems two to two and a half inches long. There are several very similar related species, the differences being concerned with the shapes of the leaves.
