Hello friends, I tried to think of a clever way to use this lovely flower’s name,” oh how ranunculus”, “don’t be ranunculus”, “that’s ranunculus” …(wink). If you can think of something to jumble the ranunculus flower’s name, kindly share in the comments.
The ranunculus with its tight petals folded beautifully together can almost look like a paper flower. Its flowers are so perfect, it’s hard to believe it’s a “real” flower.
I’ve always wanted to grow ranunculus, but I have a hard time finding corms (similar to bulbs). Through my research, I’ve learned, ranunculus corms should be planted in late winter or early spring. I missed my planting window last year. I think I’ll need to order them online if I’m going to try planting them this year.
The ranunculus doesn’t tolerate freezing temperatures and we live in hardiness zone 5. Utah weather is crazy! It was snowing here the other day! It’s 43° here right now. Temperatures Friday are expected to be in the 90’s. So, as you can certainly agree, I might be taking a risk even trying to grow them here, as it isn’t recommended to grow here by the various “knowers of all things ranunculus” (wink).
For now, I am content with “store-bought”. I can purchase a pretty bundle of ranunculus from the local flower shop for a reasonable price.
Or I can learn how to make them out of crepe paper, like these beauties created by my bloggy friend Lia HERE.
Do you grow ranunculus in your garden?
