Description

If you thought that ranunculi were casual country-garden subjects, you’re due for a re-think! Even though we’re veterans in the horticultural industry, the staff of Farmer Gracy were blown away by the superb work of the Italian master-breeder who created Italian Ranunculus 'Elegance® Viola'. Think aristocrats in designer evening wear or superstars on the red carpet. Viola is at home in the most select company and her velvety gown of deepest wine-red petals will vie with the creations of the world’s master designers.

Farmer Gracy is now licensed to distribute this magnificent plant’s bulbs in the UK, and you’re therefore free to do more than ogle this starlet. Give Italian Ranunculus 'Elegance® Viola' a VIP position in your garden: she deserves nothing less!
