Caltha palustris var. nipponica / Ryuukinka リュウキンカ

 
Caltha palustris var. nipponica, a perennial herb height of 30-50cm, inhabits wetlands or water's edges. Leaves are orbicular, 5-10cm in size, with shallow serrations on margins. On-stem leaves are small. Stem tops and axils on upperparts set bright yellow flowers approximately 2cm in diameter. The flowers lack petals, which make sepals look like petals. The sepals are 5-6 in number. Many stamens surround pistils. Bloom time: May-July.
