  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but freely draining
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Wonderfully dramatic, the sumptuous colouring of this ranunculus will make a sublime partner for rich purples, softer pinks and fresh greens. Pretty impressive in pots or the early summer border, they also make quite long-lived additions to the vase, so I would plant more than you think you will need so you will have plenty left over for cutting.

  • Garden care: Plant the tallon-like corms in autumn or spring 8cm deep and a similar distance apart with their 'fingers' facing downwards.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

      Comments about Ranunculus 'Purple Heart':

      A revelation these flowers - each colour is quite different - they are striking, proud and colourful and flower shortly after spring anenomes finish their flowering. I am hoping my planting will naturlise but will continue to plant new colours each season.

          A:

          Hello,

          You can keep the corms in a cool, dry place for a couple of weeks, however they are best planted as soon as possible after they are delivered - either in autumn or spring.

      • Q:

        Once the ranunculus have flowered, what happens to the leaves/rest of the plant? Will it die down shortly after the flowering period? My ranunculus flowered early (April) after having planted in Sept last year, and they seem to be finishing off their flowering with some of the plants starting to yellow. Is this normal or are they in need of some TLC?
        Thanks in advance!

          A:

          Hello there
          Ranunculus will start to dieback once it has finished flowering, so if the leaves are starting to yellow that could be all part of the plants natural cycle.
          Hope this helps.
