Tecolote Flamenco Ranunculus Corms

Tecolote Flamenco Ranunculus reminds us of Shel Silverstein's poem, "The Garden":

Ol' Man Simon, planted a diamond,
Grew hisself a garden the likes of none.
Sprouts all growin', comin' up glowin',
Fruits of jewels all shinin' in the sun.
Colors of the rainbow, 
See the sun and rain grow
Sapphires and rubies on ivory vines...
Ol' crow nibblin' on amethyst seeds.
In between the diamonds, ol man Simon
Crawls around pullin' out platinum weeds.
Pink pearl berries,
All you can carry,
Put 'em in bushel and 
Haul 'em into town.

Anyway. There is more, but you get the vibe.

Includes 15 corms in a cloth bag with a wooden label stake.

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
