The Spring Splendor of Ranunculus

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 The Spring Splendor of Ranunculus

This beautiful spring has brought with it an abundance of ranunculus. These early season flowers, also called Persian buttercups, are a joy to style. They not only have a lovely bloom, but usually feature a unique twist in the stem which adds a sense of movement to floral designs. The Spring Splendor of Ranunculus

We are growing many white ranunculus flowers in the garden this spring, which are currently starting to bloom.  In addition to those,  my sweet hubby surprised me with a ranunculus delivery subscription that has kept our home filled with bountiful blooms over the last few weeks.  I was thrilled to have so many beautiful varieties to paint and style and have selected a few favorites to add to the garden next year.

White ranunculus are timeless and a beautiful way to transition arrangements from winter to spring with a neutral palette.  Here they are shown with silver dusty miller and white anemones from our garden. The Spring Splendor of Ranunculus

The orange fringed variety above reminds me of a peony with so many layers of petals. The Spring Splendor of Ranunculus

The unique magenta and green ruffled ranunculus above is the Italian Pon Pon Fanny.  These vibrant blooms have a rustic texture and pair well with garden foliage and herbs. The Spring Splendor of Ranunculus

Spring pink is always a favorite hue during the Easter season and these pop with color!
