Plant Information

16" tall x 12" wide. Ranunculus are a florist favorite. When harvested in the bud stage, the 4-inch-wide blooms last for up to two weeks in a vase. In northern gardening zones, ranunculus are grown as annuals, though the odd-looking tubers can be dug up in the fall and overwintered in a box of peat moss indoors. In USDA zones 8-10, these plants are fully hardy, returning year after year with more gorgeous blooms. Tubers should be planted 3 inches deep in garden beds or containers in the spring. Soaking the tubers in tepid water for a few hours prior to planting improves the speed of root growth. In continual bloom for 4 to 6 weeks starting in late spring, 'Tecolote White' does best in full sun and moist but well-drained soil. Do not overwater as this could lead to tuber rot, and give each plant plenty of room to grow. This improves air circulation and cuts down on potential fungal diseases.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
