A couple of nice ones - Ranunculus haastii - taken in situ by friend, Chris Smart, Geography professor, who is on his sabbatical in New Zealand at the moment.  He is not a member.  I have tried to grow this from seed several times but no luck at all. Fran

That ranunculus reminds me of a winter aconite more than a buttercup!
