  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but freely draining
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Flowering colour: deep burgundy
  • 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.

  • 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!

      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.
