Ranunculus lingua, the greater spearwort,[2] great spearwort,[3] tongue-leaved crowfoot,[4] or water buttercup,[5] is a plant species in the family Ranunculaceae native to temperate areas of Europe, Siberia and through to the western Himalayas. It is a semiaquatic plant that prefers to grow in about 40 cm (16 in) of water in a variety of wetland habitats.[6] A cultivar (or perhaps a traditional variety) called 'Grandiflorus', the large-flowered greater spearwort, has 6 cm flowers and is favored by gardeners.[7]
