Double Purple Butter Cups (Ranunculus 'Double Purple') are twice as nice as your regular Purple Ranunculus! Featuring twice the petals, double the silky purple opulence, and two times the joy! With multiple blooms per plant, each form packed concentric rings of finely cut petals with crisp edges that look like they were shaped one at a time by an artisan!
With spring blooms lasting upwards of several weeks, you'll have plenty of opportunities to create lovely bouquets and watch bees and butterflies try and squeeze between the silken layers upon layers of delicate petals! And as a Persian Buttercup, this variety of Ranunculus will produce more blooms than other varieties!
When not in bloom, the Double Purple Ranunculus features low-growing fine-textured leaves that resemble Parsley foliage. Ranunculus grow from a type of bulb called a corm, and are outdoor hardy throughout USDA growing zones 8 - 11 for perennial enjoyment. Northern growers can enjoy Buttercups as annual accents or treat them as you would Canna Lily or Dahlia and dig them in the fall and store them in a frost-free yet cool dark location.
Double Purple Butter Cups is a fantastic annual accent and a great container plant for both northern and southern growers alike! One pack of bulbs will provide you with plenty of cut flowers for romantic bouquets! These romantic flowers will light up your day no matter where you decide to display them. Loving the sun, your porch and patio planters gush with these voluminous blooms!
Outdoors, these spring and early summer blooms add color, followed by the beautiful foliage for the rest of the growing season as filler. Plant clusters, as a border row for edging, or as groupings running along your walkways. These gorgeous plants create single-variety mass plantings for a spectacle that really shows off! When in bloom, bees and butterflies appear to sip the nectar.
Ranunculus thrive in full sun and a touch of afternoon shade in hot climates and will return each spring to greet you with purple blooms. Hardy perennial corms throughout USDA growing zones 8 to 11, Buttercups will thrive in containers if you live in a zone that freezes in the winter. Provide moderate moisture and well-drained soil that won't get soggy. These spring corms hide once summer heat kicks in, so deadhead after the flowers fade but keep the foliage to make food for the corm. Later, trim the leaves down when they turn yellow. For best results, soak your Ranunculus tubers for three to four hours in room-temperature water. Plant the warm weather corms with the finger-like structures pointed down, about 6 inches in depth and water them in.
