Ranunculus Breeder

Ranunculus

Ranunculuswide range of colors and forms

Origin: Middle East, East Mediterranean

Ranunculus are rather tough against cold weather and you can grow them in open air. But most cultivars of ranunculus won't survive where snow falls and freezing temperature. They prefer cool and sunny conditions where winter is mild. Usually you can grow them from tubers, but it's also possbile to grow them from the seeds.
A ranunculus flower comes in a wide range of colors, from white, yellow, pink, orange, red to purple, bicolored and even green. Flower shapes also vary from single, double, peony-like, rose-like, carnation-like, rolled-petals to petal-less! One tuber can produce 10 to 20 flowers. Cut flowres last long from 1 to 3 weeks. (which depends on the air temperature.) There are also dwarf types which are good for pots and planters.
