Elegance Salmon Ranunculus Corms

Elegance Salmon Ranunculus are a summery cantaloupe color, with petals that mature from a coral pink to a deep peach. They're our favorites, but don't tell the others.

Ranunculus are just so perfect, they're like origami roses. 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 15 corms

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
  • hello! I purchased the Ranunculus Elegance Salmon corms last fall. I live in zone 6B, so I kept the corms in my refrigerator until I planted them this spring. I have had beautiful blooms on the plants that are in my raised bed garden. Those I planted in a pot, however, are all turning yellow & only one sickly flower bloomed. I'm using an app, "Picture This," to diagnose what is happening, and it says the plant is under watered, which is not possible - we have had monsoons in the Boston area! During those storms, I keep my potted plants under a table to keep them from being flooded and soaked. Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong? or how I can rescue these beauties?! many thanks in advance, Lydia

    Hi Lydia! Is it possible that the pot is too small and they have become root bound? If so, replanting them into the ground would help. The corms are also prone to rot, so even though you've been covering them during rainstorms it is possible that the corm has rotted despite your best efforts - you can poke around in there to see if that's the case (and if so I would just compost the plants and not waste more effort to save them).
