From wedding arrangements to birthday gifts and other special occasions, the ranunculus is a super-star flower for designing and gifting. Its rose-like blooms have a layered papery texture that gives it a special charm. For fall planting, they should only be planted in zones 8 to 10. If you are in a colder zone, store the bulbs until spring or start them inside at the end of winter. You can transplant them in warmer temps.
