Ranunculus kuepferi

Ranunculus kuepferi (NL: Ranunculus kuepferi / EN: Kuepfer’s Buttercup / DE: Küpfers Hahnenfuß / FR: Renoncule de Küpfer) has grass-like leaves and white flowers making it a very distinctive species. It flowers in the Alps where the snow melts. Ranunculus kuepferi is actually a complex group of plants (all looking very similar) some of which are endemic to the Alps and others, which are also apomictic (they clone themselves without sexual reproduction), are widespead in other European mountain ranges.
