Notes for Identification: Bachelor's buttons (ranunculus aconitifolius) is a clump forming, hairy, fiberous rooted perennial producing palmately 3-5 lobed, toothed, glossy, dark green basal leaves, to 8" long. Ranunculus aconitifolius, is the perfect plant for a damp shady part of the garden - on the western side of a fence or shaded by a wall or treethe pieces of tuberous root can also be placed in pots of gritty, soil-based compost and kept in a cold frame until the following spring, and then planted out. The single form does produce seed and, as with all members of the ranunculaceae (and this includes hellebores and clematis) these must be sown when very fresh. Use a round pot filled with gritty, soil-based compost and cover the seed with coarse grit. Place in a cold frame or in a cool place. Most ranunculus are poisonous to stock
