Description

If you fancy something new, and a little unusual or ‘off-beat’, then look no further. The ruffled petals of these beautiful brown Persian buttercups have neatly frilled edges, and the large, double blooms come in gorgeous shades of orange, gold, bronze, terracotta, coffee and chocolate. Ranunculus 'Picotee Café's stems are around 30cm high, so are ideal for planting at the front of the border, or in containers. There are many forms of garden ranunculus, but these were originally bred for the cut-flower trade, meaning that the blooms are larger than normal – some 12.5cm across!

 

Ranunculus 'Picotee Café' make a stunning show from June to August, but you can stagger planting for a longer season of colour. Each tuber yields multiple flowers. Having been raised for the cut flower market, of course these flowers last well in vases, for up to two weeks if the water is changed regularly. This ranunculus strain was bred in Israel, so if the tubers are kept outside over winter in UK gardens, they will benefit from some winter protection.

Planting Ranunculus

Ranunculus are half hardy—for best results, it's a good idea to start them off in pots and then transplant out into their final positions from mid spring. They're particularly well suited to growing in patio containers, but also do very well at the front of a mixed flower border!
