Ranunculus is a large genus of around 600 species in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae, with a global distribution. The latin name means little frog, which is a reference to their preferance to moist soil. Most flower in spring or early summer, usually yellow flowers, but a few flower white or greenish flowers. They prefer sunny positions.

Propagation:


Division in spring or fall.


Seed - sown in September - November

Seed has very short viability and should be stored refrigerated until it is sown.

Seed lightly covered and stored at 20°C (68°F) for 4 weeks and then moved outside until germination. The seed needs temperatures below -5°C (23°F), so refrigeration is not enough. 

​Hardy and easy to grow. Doesn't need support.
