Ranunculus are unique flowers that have a character all their own. Although they have some characteristics similar to peonies, they also have plenty of originality. Their lush blooms have a sophisticated yet casual vibe.
Both peonies and ranunculus have many petal layers, but the ranunculus petals have a bit more definition and look very delicate when opened, making for a fresh and elegant arrangement. The centers of ranunculus can also vary depending on the variety, so they may look similar to peonies or appear denser like poppies. The picture-perfect petals may also remind you of roses, but they are wider and more airy looking.
The color range of ranunculus also varies widely, so it’s ideal if you like to switch up your color choices in arrangements and bouquets. There are hundreds of varieties, so you can find ranunculus in every shade from deep, rich colors to pretty pastels and match the color to your mood, the season, or your favorite color family. Popular colors include sunny yellow, creamy pink, bright red, romantic peachy pink, crisp white, deep orange, rich purple, and more.
Ranunculus have a classy look that make them a versatile choice for many types of arrangements. They can be incorporated into designs ranging from sweet and simple to more intricate looks that create an interplay between different flower shapes. Some ideas for how to infuse your home with color and style with ranunculus arrangements include:
