Description

Ethereal and in my view, perfectly beautiful, I adore this single (with a few semi-double) Butterfly Ranunculus which flowers in the greenhouse from the middle of March and outside about six weeks later. It’s one of my favourite things for spring picking.

Care Tips

Can be naturalised in a free draining gravel garden that doesn’t retain moisture in the winter.
