Butterfly Ranunculus will stop you in your tracks, they are so special. The delicate-looking blooms have a light coating of wax on each petal, giving them a shimmering opalescent quality. The blooms gleam, and each flower has a subtle variation of colors so each corm, producing dozens of flowers each, produces a beautiful array of blooms. Blooms for weeks in the late Spring - helping your garden stay vibrant in between the early-Spring bulbs and the Summer blooms.
Ariadne Butterfly Ranunculus are a light blush color, with a dark red center.
Ranunculus grow from corms, which are like little bulbs.
When to plant: In zones 8 and warmer, plant in the Fall for Spring blooms. If you live in a zone colder than 8, with significant stretches of cold in the Winter, you can plant the corms in the late Winter/very early Spring instead.
Planting conditions: Ranunculus grow best in good soil that is well-drained soil (they don't like 'wet feet') and in full sun or partial shade.
Care: They need regular water, and if growing as a perennial, allow the foliage to remain on the plant after blooming, to strengthen the plant for the following Spring.
Blooms: Fall planted corms bloom for about 6-7 weeks in the early Spring, and Spring-planted corms will blossom for about 4-6 weeks beginning in mid-Spring.
Hardiness: In mild climates (zones 8-11) Ranunculus will come back each year, outside of those zones treat it as an annual that needs to be re-planted each year.
