Anemone ranunculoides

Name: Anemone ranunculoides L.
Croatian name: Žuta šumarica
English name: Yellow Anemone
Family: Ranunculaceae

It grows in forests and bright bushes in early spring (March to May). It is herbaceous perennial plant, 5 - 15 cm tall.
Flowers are yellow. They have six to eight tepals and numerous stamens.
The leaves are three-lobed. They are actually bracts. True leaf grows directly from the rhizome. The plant dies back by mid-summer to the rhizome.
The rhizomes spread quite quickly just above the ground surface. So the plant makes carpets and cover great areas of woodland.
Fruit is achene.

Location: Lipik
