The name Ranunculus (Ranunculus asiaticus) pertains to a class of numerous plants, which includes crowfoots and buttercups, with flowers that develop from tubers or roots. Ranunculus plants are valued for their beautiful ruffled blooms. Despite their jazzy hues, the various petals imbue these plants with acceptable quality. Ranunculus plants may technically be cultivated as annuals and perennials, but they are more frequently grown as perennials in cool weather.
Often bought as trimmed flowers and a favorite garden flower, this network of plants with their vibrantly shaded blooms exist in a wide selection of vividly-shaded cultivars, with several tiers of petals resembling a rosette figure. Easily obtainable for home gardening, many ranunculus plants can develop to around 15 inches in height. To cultivate gorgeous ranunculus plants, you must understand how to plant and care for them.
The yearly cycle of dying and then re-germinating all over the next year is the most typical pattern for ranunculus and numerous other rhizome, bulb, and tuber plants. In temperate environments, once the summer warmth comes, ranunculus blossoms fade, and their leaves perish and fall to the ground, recycling their nutrients for the tuberous roots, where they are saved until the plant begins sprouting once more in the spring. Unfortunately, the roots most likely will not make it through the winter season in frosty environments as the earth's temperature becomes too frigid.
Ranunculus plants develop best as perennials in zones 8 to 11 of the Department of Agriculture's plant growth regions. They blossom most effectively when long, cool spring seasons follow mild winter seasons. Their tubers can survive dirt temperatures down to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit, provided that those conditions are not too lengthy. Delayed spring freezes do not typically damage foliage above the soil.
Ranunculus plants flower the following spring as long as they are cared for properly. These plants require soil that is rich in minerals and total sun exposure. It's important that they're planted in a well-drained spot since excessively damp soil can ultimately make the thick roots rot. It's advisable not to water them following planting until the first seedlings begin to sprout over the ground visibly.
