the elegant ranunculus.

you are very attractive

the ranunculus derives its name from the latin word rana, meaning "frog"-hardly the picture these dainty blooms bring to mind. the name refers not to the flowers' appearance, but to the moist environments in which they typically grow. ranunculuses are members of the renunculaceae family, and are related to peonies & anemones. these flowers have gently bending stems covered with soft, fuzzy hairand sparse foliage.

availability and vase life:
february through june. 5-7 days.
