Adonis aestivalis, commonly known as summer pheasant's eye or summer adonis, is an annual flowering plant native to Europe and western Asia. Here's a description of its key characteristics:

Appearance: Adonis aestivalis typically grows to a height of about 20 to 40 centimeters (8 to 16 inches). It has a bushy, branching habit, with finely divided, fern-like leaves. The stems are slender and often reddish-brown in color.

Flowers: The flowers of summer pheasant's eye are the highlight of the plant, featuring bright scarlet-red petals with a prominent black blotch at the base. Each flower is cup-shaped and about 3 to 5 centimeters (1.2 to 2 inches) in diameter. The flowers are borne singly at the tips of the stems and have a striking appearance.

Blooming Period: As its name suggests, Adonis aestivalis typically blooms in summer, from late spring to early summer, depending on the location and climate. The flowers are relatively short-lived but are produced continuously over several weeks.

Habitat: This species is commonly found in sunny, open habitats such as meadows, grasslands, and roadsides. It prefers well-drained, sandy or loamy soils and is tolerant of dry conditions once established.

Cultural Uses: Summer pheasant's eye is sometimes grown as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes for its showy flowers. It is also occasionally used in wildflower meadows or naturalistic plantings. However, it is not as widely cultivated as some other Adonis species.
