The Butterfly Ranunculus Bundle

A romantic duo of dusty pink and antique apricot - lovely, soft, warm pastel sweetness. Theseus and Ariadne were lovers in Greek Mythology and we love this dedication to their love.

Butterfly Ranunculus have a light coating of wax on each petal, giving them a shimmering opalescent quality, making the blooms absolutely gleam. Each corm produces dozens of flowers, and blooms for weeks in the late spring - helping your garden stay vibrant in between the early-spring bulbs and the summer blooms.

Ranunculus grow from corms, which are like little bulbs. Figuring out when to plant is a little tricky but don't worry, we'll talk you through it! Once you get them in the ground they really are not hard to grow.

Includes 10 corms, 5 of each variety.

Growing Info
How to Plant Soak your corms in room-temperature or cool water for 3-6 hours before planting. Allow a little trickle of water to run into the bowl as they rehydrate, or refresh the water every hour in order to increase the oxygen in the water (bad bacteria and mold spores like warm, oxygen deprived water). Plant immediately after soaking, 5" apart, 1-2" deep, with the little "claws" pointing down
Where to Plant Ranunculus like rich, well-draining soil. Supplement your dirt with compost or fertilizer when planting in the ground, or use fresh, quality potting soil for containers
When to Plant In warm zones (generally zones 7-10, 7 being the cusp), plant in the late fall for early spring blooms. If you live in a cold zone, with significant stretches of cold in the winter, (generally zones 6-2), plant in the late winter/very early spring instead, after your last hard frost. Corms can handle a brief, light frost, but will not survive if they are in temperatures below 30 degrees
When to Expect 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. Blooms arrive generally 90 days after planting
Care Instructions Water regularly once the foliage emerges, and pick the flowers regularly to encourage more blooms. (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) And ask us any questions along the way

Ask a Question
  • Are there 5 different colors of butterfly ranunculus or does this bundle include regular ranunculus too?

    Hi there! This bundle (more of a duo) has just two types of Ranunculus, Ariadne and Theseus Butterflies. However, the Ranunculus Rainbow Bundle bundle includes 45 Corms, 15 each of 3 varieties: Elegance Salmon, La Belle Violet, and La Belle White Picotee Ranunculus. Thanks for reaching out!

  • Hi, does "The Ranunculus Butterfly Bundle" contains 2 varieties that I can plant separately, or mixed together? Thanks!

    They are packaged separately so that you know which corms are which variety.
