Buttercup Yellow

When I saw this plant with the beautiful buttercup yellow flowers at the plant nursery the first thought that popped into my head was Ranunculus so when I read the name on the label - Trollius Europaeus - it didn't register at all. I planted it in front of some Iris and as you can see the arching form of the flower stalks contrast well with the straight lines of the Iris leaves. The cut leaves with five indents are also very pretty and the indigo flowers of the Baptista Australis in the background harmonizes nicely. I put the plant label in my back pocket to take home and look up and it promptly got lost in a pile of laundry only resurfacing yesterday. It is indeed a member of the Ranunculaceae family - common name Globe Flower.
