A gorgeous violet flower.

 

Ranunculus and Anemone belong to the same flower family. There are many ranunculus and anemone varieties, but only a few varieties that have been specifically bred for the cut flower industry. These plants produce larger, taller and more flowers than other varieties. The Italians have long been breeding the most gorgeous cut flower ranunculus and anemones and we are very excited to be sharing them with you. They have an excellent vase life and will provide your home with blooms for weeks on end.


10 corms per packet.

 

* PLEASE NOTE: Autumn bulbs only ship from February *

 

* Flower seed for Summer planting and Hydrangeas ship now. To ensure you receive your flower seeds and Hydrangeas now, do not add any Autumn bulbs (Ranunculus, Anemone, Daffodil of Tulip) to the same basket.

 

* If you have Autumn bulbs in your basket TOGETHER with summer seeds and/or Hydrangeas, you will receive your seeds in Jan/Feb only, which will be too late for planting them.

 

* IN SHORT, if you want summer seeds of Hydrangea plants, make sure it is placed in its own order (which will ship now), and then place a SEPARATE order for Autumn bulbs.
