Ranunculus repens

By GeorgePlatis
It is also known as “buttercup”. Ranunculus repens is a native flower in Rhodes and in Europe generally. Although it is poisonous for animals, it’s an impressive flower because of the bright lustrous yellow color of its petals. The name Ranunculus is Late Latin for "little frog," from rana "frog" and a diminutive ending. This probably refers to many species being found near water, like frogs.
