Growing Floret Ranunculus in the Little Cut Flower Garden

I’ve been growing ranunculus for years. In fact, it was one of the very first flowers that I wanted to grow after seeing pictures of the flowers in a seed catalog online. We’ve really come a long way in terms of corm availability since then. Last fall, I made a purchase from Floret of some really lovely ranunculus corms. Now that they’re in bloom, I couldn’t wait to share the results!

Of all the ranunculus that I ordered, I think the Floret Marshmallow ranunculus are my absolute favorite. Seriously, it is such a soft and delicate pastel pink. Whenever I try to take photos of it, it seems as if it almost glows! I’ll definitely be ordering this one again next year!

I also planted the Floret Rose ranunculus. Much to my surprise, these blooms are an extremely bright pink. They seem to vary in tone a little bit. Some of the flowers are much lighter, like the ones above. However, others have a little more of a deep color. Regardless, the flowers are consistently double and tightly petals. Absolutely gorgeous!

The Floret Champagne ranunculus mix was also quite beautiful. As you can see, I ended up with quite the range of color in my flower patch.

Last, but still totally awesome, is the Floret white picotee. I think I’ll just the photo do all the talking about this one! What a wonder spring blooming season!

    I just recently found your blog and have been devouring your posts! I am in Virginia, in zone 6b and am trying my hand at a small cut flower business this year. Your honesty, willingness to try things, and your photos are inspiring. I absolutely love seeing what you are growing. Thanks for all of the information!

    I love the ranunculas but have never grown them. I live in northern ohio zone 7 I think.. When do I plant them? What is a good resource?
    Thank you.
