Ranunculus are a beautiful, stunning flower that is overshadowed by it’s more famous cousin: the peony. Ranunculus actually remind me of a cross between a peony and a anemone – it has the unique center like anemones, but the bloom has tons of petals that create a multi-dimensional head. It’s so complex and gorgeous!
Like all complex flowers, ranunculus can be a little tricky to work with. They are a winter and spring flower, so they might not be available all year round. And their large heads can sometimes cause them to bend, so you may need to wire them in place. But isn’t the beauty worth it?
Bonus! Ranunculus are available in nearly every color!
Bloom Size: 1-3 inches
Cost: Depends on the time of year, but generally a cost-effective alternative to the peony
Fun Fact: Ranunculus means “I am dazzled by your charm.” It almost makes me want to start calling friends ranunculus as a compliment! Or maybe my male friends should start using it as a pickup line…
