Sultry, deep mauve flowers that are packed to the gunnels (as my mother would say) with petals.
Renaissance Ranunculus are a triumph of meticulous genetic selection seeking high quality, long lasting, consistent doubles in an incredible range of colours. Up to ten sensational flowers will open from a single corm, and they are double from the start to the finish - many Ranunculus are single at the start and end but these bloom on through.
Ranunculus are one of the most rewarding spring bulbs to grow and their bountiful display is absolute value for money. These Renaissance selections are the top of the range.
The Biancheri family of San Remo, Italy began growing Anemones and Ranunculus in the 1800's and have not stopped. In what is still a family business, they have remained pioneers in the development and improvement of these fabulous plants. By combining passion, tradition and cutting edge research they have gone on to create ever more beautiful and lasting flowers with worldwide acclaim. For both the Nursery and Cut Flower Industry, these are the best you can get.
Plant the Octopus like Ranunculus tubers in autumn, feed well and by the time spring rolls around you will be taken aback with the beauty of these blooms. Ranunculus take around 10-12 weeks from planting to bloom, faster in warmer weather.
Plant Ranunculus into a humus rich, well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist during active growth. They grow best in a full sun to light shade position and for best results should be fertilised well. Regular picking of the flowers will result in even more.
