    I am studying horticulture and my question is:
    Is the ranunculus acris a self-pollination flower or a cross-pollination flower.
    Thanks

    Largely cross-pollinated, by various short-tongued insects.

    PS genus names take capitals Ranunculus acris, your horticulture examiner will expect that :-)

    Does someone know: how does "ranunculus acris' attract pollinators?
    I think it is the shiny yellow leaves.

    Bri, that's starting to approach a "homework"-type question, which I'd prefer not be answered on the forums. However, I will supply you with the resource to answer it (with a little digging): Ranunculaceae in the Flora of North America
