After growing so many hardy annual flowers this year, I was most excited to see the ranunculus start to bloom. Ranunculus flowers were among the very first bulbs (corms, technically) that I ever grew. Imagine my excitement when I was able to find a lot of Amandine ranunculus corms available locally last year. Let’s take a closer look at the ‘Amandine Rose’ ranunculus that grew in my backyard this year.
Unlike the ‘Marshmallow’ and ‘Juliette’ varieties of ranunculus that I grew this season, I was pleasantly surprised to find that ‘Amandine Rose’ ranunculus were noticeably darker than the others. While I will always love pastel shades, it was quite nice to have another option to use in cut flower arrangements.
Much like other colors of ‘Amandine’ ranunculus, I was consistently amazed by the size of the flowers and their fluffy double petals. It’s easy to understand why so many people confuse ranunculus with roses – just look at those gorgeous swirled centers!
