These clump-forming plants are a key food source for the Silver-ground Carpet Moth. The blooms of these species resemble bowls or globes, which is thought to have given rise to the common name of the genus being "Globe Flowers."

Pheasant's eyes

Pheasant's eyes is a genus of about 20–30 species of flowering plants of the crowfoot family, Ranunculaceae, native to Europe and Asia. They are cultivated for use in gardens, and have been introduced to North America. The species grow to 10 - 40 cm in height, with feathery, finely divided leaves. Their flowers are red, yellow or orange and have 5–30 petals.

The leaves are basal, leathery, and usually three-lobed, remaining over winter.

Beesia

Beesia are a genus of evergreen perennial flowering plants. Their Latin name, Beesia, derives from a nursery called Bees of Chester who financed a trip to China where the plant is native. They are often kept as ornamental plants in gardens of partial shade and may appeal to gardeners for their heart-shaped leaves.

Winter aconites

Winter aconites is a genus of eight species of flowering plants native to southern Europe and east across Asia to Japan. They are herbaceous perennials growing to 10 - 15 cm tall. The flowers are yellow and among the first to appear in spring as early as winter in mild climates though later where winter snowpack persists; they are frost-tolerant and readily survive fresh snow cover unharmed. The leaves only expand fully when the flowers are nearly finished; they are peltate with several notches and only last for 2–3 months before dying down during the late spring.

False-rue anemones

False-rue anemones are perennial herbs noted for their lack of petals. The species of this genus are often mistaken for Wood Anemones or Rue Anemones. False-rue anemones can be identified by their alternate stem leaves and grow taller than other anemones. These late spring bloomers are native to North America and Northeast Asia.
Hellebores

Hellebores

Hellebores comprise a genus in the Buttercup family. They can be evergreen or herbaceous, but all are perennials. The attractive flowers bear interesting colors, including vivid lime green and dark purple. Like other members of Buttercup family, hellebores are toxic. They are often featured in Ancient Greek and Indo-European legends and folklore.

Pasque flowers

Pasque flowers are herbaceous plants noted for their silky flowers, fern-like foliage, and easy care. They are also completely covered in silky hairs, which is why they're sometimes called "prairie smoke." Several species of pasque flowerss are important symbols for various localities, including Manitoba, Canada; South Dakota, USA; and Oppland, Norway. Be wary, as these plants are toxic and should not be consumed.

Goldthreads

The low-growing goldthreads species are perennials with divided evergreen foliage and white to greenish yellow-hued flowers. Some species are listed as endangered in their native regions. These early-summer blooming plants flourish in shaded areas, preferring moist soil. Their Latin name Coptis is derived from the Greek kopto, which means "to cut," a reference to their dissected leaves.

Larkspurs

Larkspurs comprise a genus of annual flowering plants in the buttercup family. Sometimes these plants are confused with the genus Delphinium, although they differ by the annual lifespan and the flower structure with only one united petal. Larkspurs are popular as cut flowers and are cultivated in gardens, with numerous pink, purple, blue, and white cultivars available.

Halerpestes

Yellowroot

Yellowroot are a 'montypic' genus, meaning that there is only one species in the group, Xanthorhiza simplicissima. This plant is native to eastern North America, growing in shady locations beside streams. The plant's yellow roots have been used to make dyes. The fibrous stems have also been used in basket weaving.

Dichocarpum

Baneberries

The baneberries genus contains noxious perennials found in moist woodlands. The berries on these plants are highly poisonous to humans and rabbits. Birds are not affected by the toxins and help disperse the seeds of these plants. The berries resemble those of black bugbane, a close relative.

Callianthemum

Callianthemum is a genus that consists of 24 species of little rhizomatous herbs from high mountains in Europe, Central Asia and East Asia. The plants are low-growing, ornamental perennials and are lovely to rock garden. Leaves are small and radical. Flowers are showy daisy-like, with 5-15 white or rose-color petals and nectaries at the base.

Caltha

Caltha are cold-hardy, flowering perennials with small, often clustered white to bright yellow blooms. The plants contain noxious chemicals that make them unappetizing to wildlife, but their flowers attract a variety of beetles, bees, and hoverflies. The seeds of several species have developed to be spread by water, usually via rainstorms.

Paraquilegia

Larkspurs

Larkspurs

Larkspurs are frequently mentioned in Greek mythology. According to Greek legend, the warrior Achilles' armor was given to Ulysses. This so upset another warrior, Ajax that he threw himself on his sword, after which small flowers of larkspurs grew up in the places where his drops of blood hit the ground. The natural toxicity of these plants can be a hazard to grazing cattle.

Hydrastis

Native to North America, the genus of hydrastis has one species – Hydrastis canadensis. It has traditionally been used as a dye, and as it is reportedly toxic for both humans and insects, it has also been used as a bug repellant. The IUCN classified hydrastis as vulnerable on its Red List of Threatened Species.

Meadow-rues

Growing to 1 m tall by 45 cm wide, it is an herbaceous perennial, with leaves composed of frilled leaflets resembling those of aquilegia. In early summer it bears clusters of fluffy pink flowers in flat-topped panicles.

Windflowers

The genus of windflowers is a part of the Buttercup family. The Latin name was given by Carl Linnaeus in 1753 from the Greek name meaning 'daughter of the wind'. Presumably, that name occurred because the plant's sensitive petals can be carried away by the wind. According to a Greek legend, windflowers were created by the goddess Aphrodite.

Mousetails

Mousetails is annual scapose herbs. The flowers are easily recognised by bearing 6 stamens with numerous ovaries on a stalk. It comprises about 15 species. These herbs are nearly cosmopolitan (lacking in eastern Asia and tropical regions), with a center of diversity in western North America.

Eriocapitella

Eriocapitella comprise a small genus of flowering plants. The generic Latin name was given by a Japanese botanist Takenoshin Nakai in 1941 and roughly translates to "growing in a small woolly head."

The leaves have a spiral (alternate) arrangement. The tall, erect stem is crowned by racemes of large blue, purple, white, yellow, or pink zygomorphic flowers with numerous stamens. Two to 10 petals are present. The fruit is an aggregate of follicles, a follicle being a dry, many-seeded structure.

Anemoclema

Oxygraphis

Urophysa

Leptopyrum

Ranunculus

Ranunculus are a genus of herbaceous flowering plants belonging to the family of the same name.
