Plant Inspiration: Ranunculus

Plant Inspiration: Ranunculus

Apr 11, 2014

The ranunculus is probably in my top three favorite flowers. They’re so sweet and charming  with their delicate, multi-layered blooms. They’re so versatile and comes in so many different colors. I mean, roses are beautiful too but sometimes they can be a little questionable. I’m seeing a lot of ranunculus pop up at all the grocery stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods right now, so next time you’re there, grab a pot and plant it in your lovely living wall planter. From the garden.org site, “Ranunculus leaves, grass green and vaguely celery-like, grow in a mound 6 to 12 inches across. Flowers on 12- to 18-inch stems emerge in March from fall-planted bulbs, June and July from spring-planted bulbs; they last up to six weeks. On the most common type, the Tecolote strain, flowers are mostly fully double, 3 to 6 inches wide, and available in bicolored picotee, gold, pastel mix, pink, red, rose, salmon, sunset orange, white, and yellow. The less common Bloomingdale strain is shorter, to 10 inches, with pale orange, pink, red, yellow, and white double flowers.”
