About Black - Ranunculus Bulbs

Also known as Persian Buttercup

Nothing grabs attention like a blooming Black Ranunculus. While not actually black, this deep violet flower stands out above the rest in vases, wedding bouquets, and arrangements. The blooms of ranunculus are large, round blossoms with thin, delicate petals that are almost translucent by themselves. Planting Black Ranunculus in your home landscaping provides a focal planting for a flower bed or a unique potted planting near an entryway. Just be sure to plant in an area that receives full sun.
