Ranunculus austrooreganus – Southern Oregon buttercup. Upper Table Rock, 29 Feb 2016.
Happy Leap Year! I am pleased to introduce Southern Oregon buttercup to you today. The flower itself looks like the common western buttercup. But what makes it special are the back of its petals: they are reddish-brown and quite beautiful as you can see.
