hot summer, cool water #2

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 31 August 2019 in Plant & Nature.

The little flower is called 梅花藻 Baikamo, which literally means Plum Flower Waterweed. (its scientific name is Ranunculus nipponicus var. submersus.)
The optimal growth temperature for this plant is 15C , and if it exceeds 25 C, it cannot grow. This river, Jizo-River, starts from cool spring water, so is good for this plant.

lovely movement to this picture and interesting background info. We also have a white ranunculus water plant over here, but the flowers are not on stalks like these

they look beautiful..From the thumbnail. I was wondering whether they were water lilies
Have a nice weekend Hiro :)

@Devi: They are Japanese endemic species, so they ware not water lilies. Much smaller than water lilies.

Monet aurait pu en faire un autre tableau ! Très belle couleur de ces herbes vertes à fleur d'eau d'où s'élèvent ces fleurettes blanches, j'aime beaucoup ! Bon week-end.

they could be floating or submerged as they wisp across the water

These are really pretty little flowers. I like how they grow in the water. The color and the movement of the water is wonderful!
