Plants look after us if we look after them
Romantic garden flower with a casual look A compact bud produces an impressive flower which is perfect for celebrating spring in a cheerful, nonchalant wildflower style. Radiant open flowers in red, pink, orange, yellow, white, blue and purple: that’s Ranunculus. Single, semi-double, double, with ruches, aspiring to be a rose or a peony: they come in all imaginable shapes but they all look like they’ve come straight from a flower meadow. The plant grows out of gnarled tubers that are also called claws. Pot Ranunculuses flower from the start of March to the end of April. Even when they’ve finished flowering they still look good because the fuzzy black heart keeps growing for a while. Growers of this product: Vreugdenhil Bulbs & Plants & Kwekerij Montis.
