Description

A longtime favorite of florists

Days to Maturity: 140 to 175

Best grown as annuals, the Maché™ Mix Ranunculus varieties, a seed-grown strain of Persian buttercup, offer late spring to early summer interest. A longtime favorite of florists, the romantic cup-shaped, fully double blooms—with layers and layers of ruffled, papery petals—look like a cross of a peony and a tea rose. Maché™ Mix Ranunculus contains a multicolored mix of crayon-colored blooms in shades of white, cream, orange, purple, pink, rose, red, pastel mix, and yellow vanilla bicolor medley. Borne on tall stems, the elegant, lightly fragrant flowers attract pollinators and hummingbirds and make excellent long-lasting cuts for spring bouquets.

The Ranunculus asiaticus varieties in the Maché™ Mix have a uniform, upright habit of lush, feathery, parsley-like foliage that works well in beds, borders, and containers.

Easy to grow and versatile, Persian buttercups prefer full sun and sandy, slightly acidic, moist soil, but excellent drainage is essential. They perform best in climates with long, cool springs and relatively mild winters. Warm, wet conditions and heavy, unamended soils are not well tolerated. Deadheading keeps ranunculus blooming, and mulching around the plants keeps the soil cool and moist.

Seeds can be started indoors, approximately 6 weeks before bloom time, and transplanted into the garden after the threat of frost has passed in spring. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
