Ranunculus Purple (Purple Persian Buttercups) - Royal purple roses have big 3" - 4" blooms – and a single bulb can produce dozens of flowers! Ravishing perennials, they grow 10-15" tall. Where winters are mild (zones 8-11), plant ranunculus bulbs in Fall for early spring flowers. Good container plants.
