Ranunculus ( Ranunculus asiaticus ) are from the flowers that truly delight the heart. They are gorgeous, romantic and irresistible in their colorful beauty in the pot and garden. Even when it's still cold and uncomfortable outside, when you look at it, we remember the warmth and rich colors of the warm seasons. Even the small bouquet of ranunculus on the windowsill or on the table dispels the longing for a spring mood, because these flowers always bring them with them. And this is also possible in winter, because from December to June you get Ranunculus as cut flowers in many shades of white on yellow, orange and pink to rich red. Later, they are also offered in a pot. And those who care about this beauty in time can enjoy their lavish beauty in their own garden during the summer.
With bar candles and other decorative objects, Ranunculus is a wonderful decoration in every room
Ranunculus are popular decoration plants. Nowadays they often have far more than 60 petals. That makes their flower heads look like little balls. The first ranunculus were brought to France by the famous botanist Carolus Clusius in the 16th century. At that time, they had far fewer petals than they do today and looked like the wild ranunculus with cup-shaped, simple flowers. Nevertheless, they have enchanted people with their charms, so that their brown, claw-shaped tubers like tulips' onions were sold at breathtakingly high prices. Later, they also found their way into the gardens of the less fortunate plant lovers.
Flower splendor on the kitchen table
In our times modern and extensive flower breeding is developed. Now you can find ranunculus in numerous varieties with different flower colors. For the garden are mainly offered colorful mixtures whose spherical heads are reminiscent of filled peonies. They bloom outdoors from June and should therefore be planted in March at the latest. You absolutely need a well drained soil in the light partial shade. If the ground is wet, Ranunculus will be fine with the strong sun too.
