‘Chamallow’ Ranunculus: A Gorgeous Pastel Pink Bloom!

Last fall was the very first time that I stumbled upon a beautiful variety of ranunculus called 'Chamallow'. I was first intrigued by the interesting name, but even more so when told that it would be a good replacement for the 'Marshmallow' ranunculus - which was also quite difficult to find. At the end of…

‘Super Greens White’ Ranunculus in the Garden

Concluding our series of posts about the 'Super Greens' series of ranunculus is 'Super Greens White.' For whatever reason, I seldom order white flowers for the garden. I know that white flowers are an essential aspect of most cutting gardens, but I always seem to overlook them in favor of pastel colors. 'Super Greens White'…

In Bloom: ‘Super Greens Brick’ Ranunculus

In addition to 'Super Greens Salmon,' I also grew 'Super Greens Brick' ranunculus this season.

The immense double blooms quickly caused these flowers to become one of my absolute favorites in…

In Bloom: ‘Amandine Rose’ Ranunculus

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…

Spring Bouquet: ‘Victoria’s Secret’ Parrot Tulips

This season, it has felt particularly difficult to find motivation to create flower arrangements. While I have enjoyed picking and giving the flowers away, I just haven't been in the right frame of mind to try arranging them myself. When the 'Victoria's Secret' tulips finally started to open in the garden, I knew that this…

‘Marshmallow’ Ranunculus: A Dependable Favorite in the Cut Flower Garden

I first grew 'Marshmallow' ranunculus last season. Though I had only planted a handful of corms, it quickly became one of my absolute favorite flowers. When it began to bloom this year, I was very eager to see whether or not it would prove to be a reliable addition to the cut flower garden.  The…
