Persian Buttercup 'Elegance Orange', Turban Buttercup 'Elegance Orange', Persian Crowfoot 'Elegance Orange'


Ranunculus asiaticus 'Elegance Orange' (Persian Buttercup) is a tuberous-rooted plant boasting large flowers adorned with layers upon layers of beautifully structured, silky tangerine-orange petals. Reminiscent of garden roses or peonies, the flowers are borne atop thick and sturdy stems. They bloom profusely for about 6 weeks in early-mid summer in cold climates (planted in spring), or in early-mid spring in mild climates (planted in fall). Whether treated as perennials or annuals, they add brilliance to the garden and make magnificent bouquets with a vase life of 7 days.

Ranunculus asiaticus 'Elegance Orange' is an Italian Ranunculus noted for its larger flowers packed with more petals than traditional Persian Buttercups, prolific blooms, longer stem height and strong genetics which help them thrive better in warmer climates.

  • Rising up 16-18 in. (40-45 cm), Persian Buttercups look quite romantic, whether in the garden or in a vase!
  • Best in medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. The soil is best if sandy and slightly acidic. Good drainage is absolutely essential for success.
  • Perfect for beds and borders, containers and is an absolute must for the cutting garden.
  • Persian Buttercups grow from bulbs, more correctly corms, that have claws on the bottom. The corm size predicts the number of flowers. A jumbo bulb will produce up to 35 flowers while a number 1 bulb will produce up to 20 flowers, a number 2 bulb will produce up to 12 flowers and a number 3 bulb will produce up to 7 flowers.
  • Treated as perennial that comes back year after year in mild areas with perfectly drained, cool soil, they are generally treated as annuals in other areas and disposed of after bloom.
  • Deadhead spent flowers to promote new blooms.
