(12-16” tall x 16” wide) Known commonly as the Persian buttercup, Ranunculus ‘Tecolote Pink’ is a cultivar with multi-layered cupped blossoms in shades of deep, rosy pink. Silky blossoms unfurl in late spring to early summer, held above mounding, fern-like foliage on strong stems. Plant in a sunny location in well-drained soil – tubers of ‘Tecolote Pink’ prefer a moist spring and a dry summer. Tubers resemble small claws and should be planted in early spring in a sunny spot. Before planting, soak them for a few hours in warm water to jump start the sprouting process, then plant in a sunny location in moisture retentive soil. Ranunculus ‘Tecolote Pink’ loves moisture during the growing period and drier conditions as summer progresses – so a spot with good drainage is a must. In colder zones, lift the tubers and store in a cool dry, dark place over the winter months. Gardeners in warm climates with drier winters can let them overwinter in the ground.
