Trollius europaeus (NL: Europese trollius / EN: Globe-flower / DE: Trollblume, Goldköpfchen, Butterkugel / FR: Trolle d'Europe) is a perennial plant of the family Ranunculaceae. it grows up to 60 cm high with a bright yellow, globe-shaped flower up to 3 cm across. The colourful petaloid sepals hide 5-15 inconspicuous true petals with nectaries at their base and, typically for the family, a large number of stamens. Each flower produces a large number of wrinkled follicles. The leaves are deeply divided into 3-5 toothed lobes. It grows in damp ground in shady areas, woodland and scrub, flowering between June and August.
