Ranunculus ‘La Belle Champagne’

Features

  • Suitable for containers

Description

Hands down the most beautiful ranunculus we grow at the farm. This giant, abundantly flowering variety includes a mix of coral, apricot, salmon, and a few raspberry blooms. Outer petals reflex, giving flowers a garden rose-like appearance and many of the flowers have slightly laciniated petal edges with delicate veining, conjuring an old world quality. Flowers are very full, but many open to expose a charcoal center. Floral designers love this variety!

Varieties in the La Belle series have a shorter, stockier growth habit and are more productive overall than those in the Amandine series.

Details

Height: 10 to 15 in
Site: full sun

Harvesting/Vase Life

Cut when buds are colored and squishy like a marshmallow, but not yet fully open, for a vase life of 7 to 12 days. If the blooms are open when cut, they’ll still last a week but will be more fragile to transport.
