I would turn that around and say that a bouquet of ranunculus dazzle ME with THEIR charms.
Using just one of these pretty blooms was all this small arrangement needed.
I was happy to find this bunch of artificial ranunculus at the thrift store. I think they add a nice touch to the "Kate Spade Inspired" guest room.
I decided that since I am so enamored with these blooms that I should find out a little more about them.
HMMMM....maybe they are a flower that I could grow at Sweetwater.
This is what I learned:
If you live in Zone 7, you can grow them as perennials. Alas...here in Zone 4 they are annuals.
I even found the bulbs on Amazon...and placed an order.
I have been doing a little research about how to grow ranunculus in the garden.....and after reading this article, I think I have found a fun new kind of flower to grow at Sweetwater.
am really loving how these flowers look as an alternative to roses.
Here they are used as the main flower in boutonnieres.
I looked for some examples of ranunculus used in wedding bouquets.
It makes me think that maybe roses are sort of "passe".....hmmmm!
