Ranunculus take their name from 'rana' the latin for frog, probably because of their liking for damp conditions. Ranunculus acris is similar in appearance to the common buttercup, but unlike that plant it doesn't become a nuisance in lawns. It produces bright yellow, button-like flowers in June and July.

For best results grow Ranunculus acris in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade.

Our packaging is made from FSC recycled cardboard and environmentally friendly inks. The seed bags are waxed paper or compostable starch to keep seeds in the best condition during storage.
