Ranunculus asiaticus ‘Tomer Picotee’ (Persian Buttercup) is a compact, tuberous perennial boasting large, rose-like, white flowers adorned with multiple layers of delicate, silky petals with purple tips. Prolific, each plant produces masses of very long-lasting, double blossoms atop sturdy stems. Rising above a lush foliage mound of finely-cut leaves, they bloom for about 4-7 weeks in late spring to early 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.

  • Growing up 10-12 in. (25-30 cm), Persian Buttercups look quite romantic, whether in the garden or in a vase!
  • Best flowering occurs in full sun. Provide some afternoon shade in hot climates.
  • Ranunculus thrive in moderately moist, sandy or loamy, well-drained soils. Good drainage is absolutely essential for success. Ranunculus do not tolerate wet or soggy soil, which can lead to rotting.
  • Perfect for beds and borders, containers, cottage gardens, Mediterranean gardens 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 (hardiness zones 8-11) 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.
  • Ranunculus are poisonous to both animals (cats, dogs, horses) and humans. They are deer and rabbit resistant.
