Ranunculus kazusensis / Himebaikamo ヒメバイカモ

Ranunculus kazusensis is a perennial herb inhabiting clear water marshes, ponds, streams, etc., in mountainous regions. Stems, 1-2m in length, take roots at nodes onto the waters' bottoms and sway downstream. Submerged leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, 2-3cm in height; each is tri- to tetra-ternate, the leaflets cleft in two afresh, and the terminal lobes grow to thread-like - thus, the whole becomes fan-shaped. Leaf axils emerge flower stalks, 1-2cm long, on the tip, single 5-petaled 6-10mm-in-width white flowers bloom - the center portions are yellow. Bloom time: June-October.
