Run away, do nothing or bend it over.
There are no known parents.

The liverleaf is a herbacious perennial plant from the buttercup family. In Germany it is a protected plant. It is not allowed to collect it. The petals close at night and in rain. The opening movement is triggered by growth of bracts. This allows them to grow during the heyday up to twice its original size.
