You’ll swoon over this exclusive en- chanting blend of soft, pastel coloured peony-shaped Ranunculus! The lush, textured blooms in late spring are unbeatable. Flowers June 30cm.
Growing 30cm - 40cm tall these hard to find, claw like tubers yield long lasting camellia like ruffled flowers with darker centers and lacy foliage, plant them outdoors after ant threat of spring frost has passed.
Immediately prior to planting, soak the tubers for three to four hours in room temperature water to promote faster sprouting and root development. Plant the tubers 2' deep and 4' to 6' apart in full sunlight and well draining soil. Plant with the claws pointing down, allow the foliage to die back naturally.
Ranunculus are terrific grown indoors in cool bright greenhouse conditions or on a windowsill, after soaking pot the tubers closely together covered with 2' of sterile potting soil in well draining pots. Place them in a 55* to 60 * F greenhouse in light shade until the sprouts are 2' tall, then shift the pots into bright greenhouse sunlight. They flower in 10 to 16 weeks or so once potted.
