Anyone able to ID this Ranunculus. The packet said gramineus but the leaves and stems do not seem right.




Sorry, pass.

Certainly not what it said on the label. R. gramineus ought to have grass like leaves.

Hi, I think the nearest I can find is R auricomis, Derek.

This is a puzzle. I looked at R.auricomis but this does not have a collar of fine green leaves immediately below the flower. It also has five petals this one has six. I googled Ranunculus with 6 yellow petals and it came up with R. bulbosus but the leaves are different. I wondered if it could be R. glaberrimus.

Hi, it doesn't look like R Glaberrimus to me, the leaves look quite different, as you say, a mystery, Derek.

Either of these links have similar flowers. Both seem to spread so I will not be planting it in the garden.
