Produces a mass of double, gorgeous red flowers. Amongst the showiest of the spring bulbs, rununculus are free-flowering and provide weeks of gorgeous 4-6cm flowers on strong 30-50cm stems. Feed regularly to ensure they flower to their full potential.
Best planted in a sunny position in free-draining soil rich in organic matter.
For best results chill the bulbs for 5-6 weeks before planting.
Plant the bulbs 'claw' down in loosened soil 3-4cm deep in clumps 6-8cm apart and if drainage is a problem plant into a slight mound.
When planting into pots use a mix without water storage crystals such as Kings Potting Mix or Yates Bulb Mix.
