Adonis amurensis is a fascinating spring ephemeral ranunculus relative from mountainous grassland meadows and forest edges in alpine and subalpine zones in China, Japan, Korea, and eastern Siberia. Thelacy green foliage emerges for us in late January, and by early February is topped with 8" tall stalks of bright yellow daisies. After flowering, the foliage expands to 15" tall until warm temperatures arrive at which time it goes to sleep for the summer. Moist, rich soils and a lightly shaded location are ideal.
