About Violet - Ranunculus Bulbs


Seed Type Corm
Also known as Persian Buttercup

Magestic and mysterious, it’s easy to fall in love with the rare Violet Ranunculus. Its glossy foliage and dark blooms provide striking contrast with other pastel-colored spring flowers, both in the garden and in the vase. The fragrant multi-petaled blooms catch and deepen shadows, further intesifying Violet Ranunculus' dark hue to the camera lens–and even the naked eye. No flower patch is complete without ranunculus, and no ranunculus bed is fulfilled without at least a few corms of Ranunculus Violet.
