Ranunculus are popular with florists because their rose-like flowers are long-lasting and easy to arrange. The blossoms display layer upon layer of silky petals in bright colors. These exquisite, rose-like flowers of ranunculus are a staple in any flower shop or wedding bouquet. In regions with mild winters, buttercups can be planted in autumn for an early bloom in April. In colder regions, they can be planted in spring to ensure an early summer bloom. Flowering period: May to July Flower diameter: 4 cm Hardiness: not very hardy, keep the tubers in a cool and dry place over winter Exposure: part sun, half-shade Soil: light, rich, well-drained Acidity: neutral Use: bedding, pots, porches and patios, window boxes, lawn borders, cut flowers
Soak the corms for half a day before planting. Plant the claws pointing downwards at a depth of 5 cm from the surface of the soil, spacing them 15 to 20 cm apart, depending on the desired effect. They can be planted in containers or in a garden and you can enjoy their beautiful blooms both indoors and out. During the growing season, water regularly in hot and dry weather, letting the substrate dry between waterings. Add a special flowering plant fertilizer every two weeks during the flowering period. Planting depth: 5-8 cm Plantation time: spring Shoot width: 10 cm - 20 cm Total height at maturity: 20 cm - 30 cm Cut off spent flowers after blooming to induce the formation of new flowers. Do not cut the foliage. In cold regions, dig up the corms in autumn and store them throughout the winter in sawdust, protected from frost, in a cool, dark place. In other regions and in well-drained soil, they can be left in the ground.
