Pulsatilla cernua (Thunberg) Spreng. var. koreana (Nakai) Y. Lee comb. nov.
Pulsatilla koreana's are yellow pasqueflowers or windflowers, and they are called yellow grandma flowers ("Norang Halmi-ggod") in Korean. The flower is a perennial that is in the order and family of Ranunculus japonicus (better known as buttercup). More common are the dark red ones but the yellow grandma flower, maybe thanks to its golden colour, stands proud and confident, shining with the elegance of nobility.
