In my quest to expand my flower garden this spring, I quickly filled an entire row with ranunculus corms. Upon ordering ‘Tecolote Salmon’ ranunculus, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Sure, the photo on the supplier’s website was beautiful – but very seldom do such pictures reflect reality when it comes to these plants. Let’s take a closer look at the flowers that opened up –
Though the flowers online showed very full double blooms, the ‘Tecolote Salmon’ ranunculus that grew in my yard were much less “double” than anticipated. As you can see from the photo above, keeping up with harvesting the flowers at the right time proved be quite a task – especially with my very warm spring temperatures and extended periods of rain.
Still, the wide range of colors that was present was simply gorgeous. Rather than a single peachy tone, I was greeted in the garden with an absolutely stunning array of peach and coral colors. I also really loved the fluffliness of their petals. As each flower continued to open, I really enjoyed watching them sway in the breeze. This also gave flower arrangements a very pretty carefree appearance.
Despite my initial concern that ‘Tecolote Salmon’ ranunculus flowers may not make a good cut flower, I’m happy to find that I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed having this ranunculus in my garden this past spring and would definitely grow it again, should the opportunity arise. Have you ever grown ‘Tecolote Salmon’ ranunculus before?
