Ranunculus: a temperate plant of a genus that includes the buttercups and water crowfoots, typically having yellow or white bowl-shaped flowers and lobed or toothed leaves.
Floriography dictates the ranunculus a symbol of cheerfulness, charm, and joy. Just trace the outer petals of the cool-season bloom toward its tightly wound center to discover that sometimes it takes venturing far from your core to find your way back to the happiness that already exists inside of you: a reminder of renewal and the cyclical nature of growth. Often slower to bloom, the ranunculus flower is a lesson in pace, teaching us that beautiful things grow from going slow.
